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

Pot Parking Pads Mini Feature!!

Newly laid flagstones.
Thanks to a power cut and having 2 buckets of mortar mixed for other work and not wanting to waste it, the well path got its entrance widened!! 

The ground drops away here so Chris Genever dug down, made foundations using sand, cement and bricks, cut the stone then laid and pointed them up.  The path here is a tad narrow for two large pots so now we can move them onto two newly lid flagstones.  

Now we're discussing what we might use as plinths for the pots!
