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

 WELL!!  Can you believe it??  We can't!!  We were amazed - truly!  Our Under Gardener was bowled over to learn that we were even a finalist - particularly as I hadn't bothered to tell him the garden had been entered!  All the other regional winners are sitting in their beautiful sunny gardens for their videos but it was a really filthy day here so I'm sitting in a pretty dark and very echo-eee greenhouse!  Yes of course it's cheesy.  I'm not used to talking to a camera.  Anyway it's super exiting and we're looking forward to the arrival of our plaque.  Let's hope it enables us to make even more money for charity!!

A big BIG thank you to both our voters and our loyal supporters!!
