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

Getting Edgy!

Elsewhere in the garden the lawn edges have been lovingly manicured all round the garden ..... at l-o-n-g LONG last!! Going round with a half moon edging tool and long handled edging shears is a very time consuming job especially as it's impossible not to find and deal with weeds and we have miles and MILES of edges - not to mention all the tree squares and circles.  It really is never ending.  Having been round with the half moon, at least I can get away with just edging shears and, sometimes, Chris brings his Stihl edging tool and whizzes round the entire garden in about 10 minutes!
