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

A Visit from Sutton Coldfield Ladies' Gardening Club

The rain held off for 50 members of the Sutton Coldfield Ladies' Gardening Club who arrived in a coach to visit the garden and enjoy coffee, cakes and biscuits.  Joe their coach driver coped brilliantly with our narrow lanes despite encountering our dustbin lorry twice.  It was much more of a surprise for them than Joe! The ladies were all very enthusiastic about the garden and many promised to make a return visit. They then left for lunch at the Masons Arms followed by a visit to Little Malvern Court this afternoon.

What a shame we forgot to take any photos whilst they were actually here!!

This means that, so far this year, our garden has raised a total of £1185.95 for charity!

After visiting Pear Tree Cottage last year we knew straight away that this lovely garden was the one for The Sutton Coldfield Gardening Ladies Gardening Club to visit. They were not disappointed firstly the welcome from Pam and of course the Garden which is just perfect with so much to see. Everybody loved it!

Many thanks Pam - we will be back!
