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.

Money Raised for Charity

As an acqaintance enquired how much money Pear Tree Cottage Garden had raised since it began opening for charity, I've been looking back through old records and doing a few sums. Our NGS treasurer confirmed that we have been opening for the National Garden Scheme for 4 years. We have opened for Wichenford Open Gardens which is a biennial event for 5 weekends and the grand total is a whopping £10.000.71p.  Now, for a single very rural garden in the depths of the Worcestershire countryside, I find that figure pretty surprising!

Good news for the start of a new year!
