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.

More Lucky wins at Trumpet Ploughing Match

'Hey! Don't forget me!'
Trophies are only held for a year!

NOT JUST PLOUGHING!


Head Gardener was very lucky at Trumpet this year!  As well as being placed in other classes, a best in show with an arrangment in Chris's enamel jug was the most exciting triumph. The trophy was a very elegant pewter ewer.  As ever, there were teams of working horses to drool over, vintage tractors a brilliant full roast lunch and plenty of lovely characters! The weather held dry and a thoroughly good time was had by all!
