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

Moving Dragons!!


Having moved the dragon posts lawn entrance to the lawn to the left by 1 yard, all is looking very settled.  It's been the best mini project and has made digging up and moving all the roses, lifting and relaying the turf totally worthwhile.  It's a big advantage to have the table sideways on and still have room to pass easily with a full wheelbarrow.  The new plants are establishing in the two borders either side of the well path.  The roses are budding up and the under planted Pulmonarias are all establishing.

I should have thought of it AGES ago!!  Even the dragons lprefer it!
