Pete's Garden Garden

Located in Stockton on Tees, United Kingdom, Oldpruner's Pete's Garden garden is an outdoor garden that currently contains 2 plants.

This is a Wildlife garden that is known to be in USDA Hardiness Zone 8b. It has mainly Clay soil and receives Full Sun light.




I have a south facing garden with mixed planting. There is a lawn with mixed planting borders, not very well maintained but they have some well established roses. I intend to try and work on making the borders more colorful. I have 2 old apple trees (one eater and one cooker) and a pear tree. I tried my hand at some vegetables this year, potatoes, peas and beans, courgette, pumpkin, lettuce and rocket. I was reasonably successful but I know there is much room for improvement. I tried carrots and spring onions but they did not come up.I had two small raised beds but have removed them as they are shaded by trees. Future veg will probably be in containers and perhaps in the borders. I have a small pond with 4 ducks that have trashed the plants that were in and around the pond, I want to try and landscape the pond with plants that are duck proof. I have an 8′×6′ greenhouse that I will be building soon and then I will be planning over the winter for 2017. I’ll upload some photos soon.
