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!

WEED of the WEEK!

The world's biggest Sow Thistle!

We've just had an Open Gardens weekend.  How on earth did we miss this GIANT Sow Thistle???  Neither Chris nor I have ever seen one this big - ever ever!  The shame of it!  Will I ever live it down?  Were visitors too shocked by its sheer size to even comment?  It should be weed of the century!!
