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

Show Successes!


Goodness knows where the time has gone since my last post!!  Autumn is now in full swing and, if anything,  the colour change is a little earlier this year.  Maybe, because of the summer drought.

We had some unexpected successes at Stoke Bliss last month!  In the Dahlia class, we had a second, desert apples, we had another second and the biggest surpise of all was a third prize for meadow hay!!  It was a beautiful sunny day and a delight to see the vintage tractors at work as well as 4 teams of horses ploughing.  I also had a couple of 1sts in other classes  Stoke Bliss Successes
