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


17 June 2022



So much is happening in the garden, there's been hardly any time for blog posts!!  The meadow grass is quite high now and some has already been cut - the area with the biggest amount of vetch!  It was just tooooo jungle-like!  

The remaining grass will be cut & dried later.  The hay we make will line the chickens' nest boxes.  Mowing and edging at this time of year is very time consuming and Needs doiong every 5 - 6 days.

Meanwhile the potatoes planted on 17th April are now flowering and we have tasted a few yummy Arran Pilots!!
