A major tidy up of pots and containers was next - trimming the Erigeron karvinskianus, ditching dead cyclamens (all victims of heavy frosts), removing dead scented Nemesias and, after another trip to Newent Plant Centre, planting a new Hellebore nigra in the gap left in the dragon pot by last year's Skimmia (which now happily resides in a border). Note the height of the narcissi and it's still only January.

- 'UP THE GARDEN PATH' by Pam Thompson
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

Solo Saturday Slog!
It's pretty unusual for me to have a Saturday alone in the garden but Chris was away urgently planting bareroot copper beeches. I actually finished my greenhouse clear up by sorting out the corner underneath/behind the lemon tree - not exactly easy access but I won the battle!
That done, I trimmed the flagpole Yew which was missed earlier then onto the Senecio - as we call it. I think it's actually Brachyglottis sunshine. Anyway, it's meant to be a ringed doghnut shape in which Sinful Cynthia stands or rather flaunts! I know Chris would have done a better job!
