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

On freeeezing cold and rainy May Day visitors began arriving even before the garden gates opened!! An astonishing £732.75 was raised for the National Garden Scheme. A HUGE thank you to Lyn Wilkes
& her team who slaved in a positively glacial garage & to all 83 visitors who weren't put off by the weather & who eventually found their way to our very rural cottage garden from far & wide!

As always, a special thank you to Chris Pugh for all his hard work & our neighbours who carted & lugged tables & chairs & made delicious cakes & supplied parking.

The weather may have let us down but the Wisteria put on real show!
