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

Moons to Chickens!

Time lapse hedge cutting!

This Saturday, hedge cutters and mowers were on overtime as Chris trimmed both the Bay tree and the Yew hedge and I mowed all in readiness for visits from Contact the Elderly and fellow garden owners in Wichenford and those who came and helped back in June when The Gardens of Wichenford held it's biennial open gardens event.  The Yew hedge takes a little longer each year as the topiary grows and there's always one topiary shape that we puzzle over.  Things were made more difficult when Al said we ought to turn the moon into a chicken!!  THAT will definitely have to wait until next year now!
