The green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England, is home to the cider apple orchards which surround the gardens of Pear Tree Cottage. They enjoy a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury and Abberley clock tower. The Teme Valley lies just over the hill and, not far away, is the Herefordshire border. Although our climate is temperate, our seasons are often uncertain and always a challenge to a gardener! This began in 2010 & follows the weekly ups and downs of garden work chronicling both successes and failures but, above all, demonstrates the fun enjoyed by three people who regularly garden in all weathers

The Arrival of the Replacement Greenhouse

Can this really be a whole greenhouse?
The name fits!

HURRAH!! The replacement greenhouse has arrived!!! Installation takes place tomorrow. In the meantime, our ace electrician: Dave (of DSM Electrical Installations Ltd) came over and did the all important electric cabling in readiness for the interior plug sockets and lighting. He also replaced an underwater light in the culvert.  We can now go ahead with paving at the front of the greenhouse. On seeing the brick built base, the delivery man immediately sang the praises of Chris's artistic eye for detail and loved the wall features. Roll on tomorrow!!!
