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 - PHZ 8, our seasons are often uncertain and always a challenge to a gardener!
It all began in 2010 & follows the weekly ups and downs of garden work chronicling both successes and failures but most of all demonstrates the fun enjoyed by three people who regularly garden in all weathers.

An Ocean of Pink Perfume!
A distant Woodbury Hill
Well, considering the spring we've had this year, the garden isn't looking too bad. Even if it was, the apple blossom surrounding it makes up for any/everything. It's a sea of pink perfume! It really is a perfect garden back drop and as for scent.....! I only wish I could bottle it!
