What is a Potting Shed

In its truest form, a potting shed is a small construction, dedicated solely to gardening activities. However, you don’t really need a separate structure to pot and propagate. You just need a little shelter, some light and a cosy place for your young plants to nurture and grow.

In this article Sheds Direct will discuss what it takes to make a great potting shed. 

For the keen gardener, the potting shed is often right at the heart of the garden. It’s where plants get their start, where these plants can be sheltered and nurtured and it’s also where harvests are gathered.  Many people associate the traditional potting with the coming of spring by sowing seeds, growing cuttings and planting out the summers flowers and harvests.  This shed style is the shelter from summer heat or sudden rainstorms, and where people plan their gardening activities, schedules and a place to relax after a fulfilling day in the garden.

One you have decided upon a installing a potting shed the next task is to consider it’s function, purpose and layout.

The Layout of your Potting Shed

The ideal layout should have the space and functionality of 3 distinct areas, a work area, a storage area and a relaxing area.  Windows are always a welcome addition to any enclosed  shed, especially if they overlook the garden and offer welcome sunlight. Windows can offer additional benefits of good lighting which is a must for any potting shed.

Lighting Your Work area

A combination of natural and artificial lighting can offer the best of both worlds, natural lighting on those sunny days and artificial lighting when the sun is not so bright to help you with the intricate details of pruning and seeding. An inexpensive fluorescent or artificial light installed over your worktable is especially nice on those dark, rainy days or when your work extends beyond daylight hours.

Storage in your potting shed

It’s tough to imaging a potting shed without an array of pots and soil. Since storage space is always at a premium, these pots and bags often find a home on the floor.  If you’re really going to use a potting shed and not just as a storage room, you must have a potting bench, the ideal bench should be built at a comfortable standing height.  If you are going to be standing for extended periods simply adjust the height of the bench to accommodate a chair or stool.
Having some shelves to store tools and perhaps a radio and your reference books will help to organise the potting shed just the way you want it.
