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.

NGS Open Garden Afternoon

A perfect summer's day helped to attract 90 visitors to our NGS Open Gardens afternoon. Why do gardens look SO much better in sunshine? We raised a massive £686.00 and our total so far this year is already £1,127.00!  Our team did an absolutely wonderful job waitressing, washing up and clearing up at the end of the afternoon.  We were so lucky to have so many wonderful bakers who made and delivered really outstanding cakes which were much enjoyed by our visitors. 

Thanks to Chris, the garden looked as neat as a new pin with perfectly trimmed hedges. He even made an emergency delivery of cushions and distributed them all round the garden ensuring that every seat had its own cushion - even the secret stump seats! He even took the photos.
