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

Home Styled Broad Bean Supports.



Am rather pleased with my new broad bean supports!!  I drew out the design and our local agricultural engineers - JW Lanes made them. Being weighty metal bar, they sit in the post hooks and with the mini spheres welded on each end, there's no sharp sticky out pointy bits! A million times easier than wrestling with pig netting and fiddling around with canes and string - which always comes loose!  I shall of course allow them to rust naturally.
