Potting Shed FAQ
What is a potting shed?
Potting sheds are small outbuildings that are used for gardening. They have fantastic natural light, with multiple windows and usually a skylight. Potting sheds are perfect for seeds that you don’t want to grow inside, and many have built in shelves for storing tools.
Potting sheds stay warm in the winter and are a relaxing place to sit and admire your plants.
How to organise a potting shed?
Potting sheds are a haven for keen gardeners, but a well organised shed will make it a far more relaxing place to be. If you’re using your potting shed for storage, ensure you have enough shelving and wall pegs so you can store your gardening equipment. Seeds should be stored in a box off the ground to deter mice.
Organise your potting shed into zones to make it most efficient. Many people organise their plants based on how much heat they need. Those that grow in warm temperatures should be put in the warmest area of the shed, while cold tolerant plants can be put in cooler spaces.
Make a schedule so you know exactly when to sow and harvest. Once a plant has been harvested, you can use the spot to grow something else for the next season.
What to grow in a potting shed?
A potting shed can be used to grow almost anything. Many people use their potting shed to grow edible produce, like fruits and vegetables, as well as flowers. Potting sheds allow you to grow almost anything you would in a greenhouse, with the warmer temperature allowing you to grow year-round.
A potting shed is a great alternative to a greenhouse and, provided you purchase from a quality manufacturer, it should last a good few years! Keen gardeners will love having their own potting shed to showcase their plants and produce.
