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

Hypothermic Hellebores looking Happier!

Following the thaw here at PTC, it's lovely to see that the Hellebores and Snowdrops are slowly recovering from their heavy and deep blanket of snow and are slowly raising their heads once again - well, inasmuch as Hellebores do!  These most showy of early blooms always bow their heads so modestly.  It's amazing to realise that last week they were entirely buried beneath deep snow.
