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

Pear Hut Upgrades!!


Our little Shed of the Year runner up - the Pear Hut, has been enjoying an expert makeover by Simon.  He has repainted all 3 windows inside and out.  The inside has also had a repaint and a change of colour.  Even the woodwork has been treated so it really is looking super smart - so much so, I was moved to repainting the seat which stands outside  under the front windows.

Hard to believe that 5 years have elapsed since Channel 4 sent a film crew of 6 to film our humble little shed which is actually a writing room.

Before replacing the contents, I waged war against all the spiders and cobwebs which had accumulated in alarming numbers! It won't be long before the overwintering money plants (Convolutas) can go back outside again. Oh - and in case you're wondering: the interior is now painted in Elephant's Breath and Mouses Back!  No prizes for guessing who makes those colours but a BIG thank you to Simon for applying them so expertly!!
