The gardens of 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!

Cucumber Cornucopia

With white fly well at bay and 2 burgeoning plants, its cucumber city in the Hartley Botanic! Tomatoes too are beginning to ripen and Heliotropes, Geraniums and Fuchsias adding both colur and perfume to the scene. Maybe this why our resident Morse Toad likes his surroundings so much! He patrols beneath the cucumbers and favours sitting among the lettuce plants
