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

Less Space = More Room!

Exterior pot storage

Who wouldn't be pleased with their very own potting shed and all the new shelving facilities in the tool shed? I'm not sure which was/is more fun. Building it or using it? The weird thing is -  less space equals more room!  The extra storage is a BIG bonus. Canopies & guttering mean less algae, fewer puddles and less standing water. As for the little oriel window with its lead roof and new views across the orchard and the garden - it's just so lovely! Thanks Chris for all your help.  It was lots of fun and it's perfect to use. More photos
