Write the first review


There's no doubt as to why the Rook 8ft x 12ft Potting Shed is so popular with keen gardeners who need a large light filled space to sow and propagate plants.

Sunlight floods into the shed from a roof that's half glazed, and growing conditions remain ideal due to automatic vents that operate even when you are away from home. Also fitted is an end window that introduces more fresh air.

A long lifespan is guaranteed as Swallow are the only manufacturers to construct all their garden buildings from ThermoWood®, Scandinavian timber that has been heat treated to remove moisture and resin. The result is extremely durable, and very resistant to warp and decay even without preservatives.

The toughened 4mm glazing is sealed and staging located at the front of the shed is fitted as standard. Shelves at the rear can be added to and if you are an enthusiastic re-cycler, there's a rainwater collection system available as an option.
