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

Gardener's Day Off!!


  Head Gardener took a day off to visit another garden!! One she'd been meaning to visit forever - the gardens at Bryan's Ground (  The house and gardens have been sold and today was the very last day the gardens were open under the present ownership. To say I was cutting things a tad fine would be true!! Accompanied by the most delightful birdsong on a glorious May day we explored these enchanting gardens. The hard work, humour, clever design, brilliant planting was so apparent at every turn.
