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

King of Cabbages

The rest of the row

Brassica oleracea January King

No it's not Lewis Carroll talking about cabbages and kings but they are cabbages and they are kings. In this case January Kings! They're not huge but they are hearting up well. Let's hope we can keep the pigeons away and enjoy these ourselves!
