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

Spring Garden Work

The Top Lawn

Thank goodness, the gales and squalls have stopped!  Whilst enjoying the cool sunshine, there's been much, mowing, edging, weeding and tidying.  Chris has even finished emptying the compost bay and our under gardener turned out to creosote the inside before last year's accumulation is turned over and into the empty bay.

Looking unusually tidy for March!
The Magnolia is in full bloom and the Woodland Border is full of colour from Narcissus, Hellebores, Euphorbias, Anemones, Pulmonarias and Epimediums with Lilies-of-the Valley next in line.

Thanks to the warm February, never have we been this far ahead!
