This is a serious potting shed suitable for any gardener who is dedicated to growing a large range of plants in ideal conditions.
Built to a traditional design yet in a modern manner with ThermoWood®, the 8ft x 18ft Rook Potting Shed is both great to look at and very productive.
The Scandinavian timber has been heat treated, so it has extremely durable qualities and, as it doesn't expand or contract, is able to resist warping and rot.
Toughened glass has been silicon sealed, and the roof is partially glazed to allow in the maximum amount of light. Roof vents open automatically, the refreshing flow of air making sure that the shed does not overheat and ideal growing conditions are created.
Also installed as standard is staging that runs the length of the shed, providing an inviting amount of space to fill with seed trays and plants. Below, on the 12mm wooden floor, you can store any compost, pots and tools so they are out of the way but close at hand.
At the rear of the shed, there is further storage space and two shelves. Another can be added from the list of optional extras, or you may prefer a high shelf over the staging. A further option would be the Hunter rainwater system, collecting this resource ready to be recycled.
