What is a Potting Shed?
Potting sheds are highly practical if you're looking for a place to store those bulky gardening tools as well as grow your own plants. Many people, unfortunately, don't have the space in the garden for both a greenhouse and a shed, and generally opt for just a shed, missing out on the opportunity to grow any of their own flowers, fruit, and veg. However, a potting shed combines the best parts of a greenhouse and the storage ability of a shed into one compact, practical building to both store and grow inside!
When spring arrives and your thoughts focus on what can be achieved in the garden, getting started on sowing seed, whether for vegetables or flowering plants, must be high on the agenda. And that’s when a potting shed comes into its own, a warm and bright environment that will encourage your seeds to germinate and grow.
If you are searching for ‘potting sheds for sale near me’, the selection on GardenSite will provide the answer, a huge choice that is built to great specifications. All our potting sheds are built from excellent quality FSC timber, they are very practical with exceptional glazing but each has features that you may find particularly appealing.
UK potting shed brands such as Swallow use Thermowood® to build their structures, a heating process has eliminated most of the timber's moisture, so it won’t shrink or warp and is very rot resistant. Their 8ft wide Rook and 6ft wide Jay styles boast top fixtures and fittings including toughened glass, tongue and groove cladding with a choice of coloured finishes, full-length staging, and a variety of accessories.
Shedlands, another UK crafter offers potting sheds from 6ft x 6ft to 10ft x 8ft, with real horticultural glass included as standard, which has an excellent light transmission and the stable doors are both functional and an attractive feature. No OSB or chipboard is used in their construction, only good quality galvanized fittings and coach bolts to ensure a strong and stable structure.
For something a little different, have a look at the combi potting shed from Rowlinson that combines a potting shed with a garden shed. It naturally has lots of storage space but also benefits from the roof as well as side glazing to take full advantage of available sunlight. There are two versions, one of which is specifically designed for a corner location.
