The gardens at 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, our seasons are often uncertain and always a challenge to a gardener!

No Room at the Inn!

How have I managed to fill the greenhouse to capacity??? I lay all blame all those chrysanths. Despite never having grown any before, I am just loving their autumnal scent and filling the house with them. The trouble is, I can only just open the far door and I still have to find room for all the Agapanthus and more geraniums. With the help of a neighbour, we even managed to move the lemon into a corner and it weighed a TON! I have sworn never to lift it again! Still we're nearly there and then: Al had a brainwave!!!  Use the telephone box! Now why didn't I think of that?

Back to work!
