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

Austria's Answer to Monty Don!

This is Karl Ploberger - Austria's answer to Monty Don! Karl is a horticultural TV celebrity in Austria where he presents his own TV programme on gardening. Horticulture is also very popular over there and there is a particular interest in English gardens. He and his colleague visited Pear Tree Cottage today as he is over here checking out possible venues to bring Austrian horticultural enthusiasts next year. After a grey and showery day, the sun came out just in time for his visit!
