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.

May! The best month in the garden!

Tree Peonies ensure both impact...


Beneath an Acer Seiryu


I can't resist taking photos in May! It's such a perfect month - even with our wildly variable weather patterns! The surrounding apple blossom looks amazing but the 24000 trees in full bloom would! The Wisteria is in bloom and the perfume is to die for! The ferns are unfurling and I found my first 3 Smyrniums in the Woodland Border - yippee! Also, Brian came and painted the inside of the greenhouse.
