The gardens at Pear Tree Cottage sit in a cider apple orchard in the green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England. It enjoys a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury & 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!

More Wisteria History

Further to my earlier post see: Wisteria History (28 May 2016) I came across this photo of the Dog at Dunley.
Now!  Given that my wisteria is a direct descendant of the Wisteria growing up this very pub: how fascinating is the following information???

The Dog at Dunley

This photo is from an old Stourport News and it shows the front of The Dog Inn,Dunley the photo was from Sam Baylis who was born in Dunley and planted the Wisteria outside when he was aged 11 in 1926, the Timber carriages in the picture belonged to Powells of Bromyard and the Model T Ford was owned by Sam Powick who stayed at The Dog Inn.
