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

NGS May Open Gardens.

Following over a month of persistent frosts and hardly any rain, we've been in recovery following a hugely successful garden opening for the National Garden Scheme.  We had approx 135 visitors and made a WHOPPING £1,168.50!!  How amazing is THAT?  We owe a huge debt of thanks to Lindy, Lyn and Sheila for selling so many homemade teas.  Also Pat & Brian for borrowing and delivering all the tables and chairs and especially Pat for making such a huge number of cales!  Malc & Paul supervised parking and 

everybody brought sunshine!! One very enthusiastic visitor was so complimentary, I wasn't going to resist sharing these comments from the visitor book!!  It certainly makes all the hard work totally worthwhile. A BIG thank you to all our visitors, helpers and supporters!!
