A Potting Shed is a Joy to Own

Why a Potting Shed?

A potting shed is the ultimate shed for anyone who loves gardening.

It features all of the benefits of a traditional shed and with one important addition – it’s a great place to nurture plants.

If you grow your own fruit and veg, or enjoy admiring nature’s most beautiful flowers, then a potting shed should be your go-to garden building.

Potting Shed Benefits

Designed to enjoy an abundance of natural light, a potting shed provides the ideal temperature for growing plants, particularly those that aren’t quite ready to brave the outdoors.

What’s more, is there a better place to keep your pots, trays, tools, soil and seeds than in the exact place where they’re needed? Of course not!

And a potting shed still contains ALL of the benefits of a normal shed, you ask?

Why, of course. Think about it.

Garden storage? You’ve got it.

A weatherproof outdoor shelter? Naturally.

A cosy hideaway at the top of the garden? Trust us, there’s nothing cosier.

Oh, and don’t forget that this is Shedstore; so don’t imagine that all of our potting sheds are only suited to traditional cottage gardens featured in episodes of Miss Marple, either.

We cater for all tastes: the traditional, the modern, and everything in between. Here, come and take a look…

3 Great Types of Potting Shed

a corner potting shed with open double doors

10’ x 11’ Rowlinson Wooden Corner Garden Potting Storage Shed

When most people picture a potting shed, this is probably what it looks like.

The large bay window with pots and seed trays on the ledge, the adjoining garden storage area, the wooden cladding and the apex roof – they’re all hallmarks of a traditional potting shed.

Furthermore, if it’s designed and built by Rowlinson, you know it’s going to be good.

To prove the point, this corner potting shed is made from premium 12mm tongue and groove cladding, and that includes the floor, while the roof is solid sheet and comes with a mineral felt covering to keep out the rain.

Enjoying plenty of natural light, this premium potting shed has 7 windows and glazed roof panels, which are all made from unbreakable styrene. Three of the windows open, helping you regulate the temperature inside for the benefit of your plants.

The wide double doors offer easy access to the garden storage area, where there’s room for a wheelbarrow, garden tools, fertiliser and more. These doors can be secured by a padlock, so your valuable gardening equipment, and invaluable plants, will remain safe and secure.

If this isn’t enough to tempt you, all of the potting benches are included, as is an excellent 10-year anti-rot guarantee, so you’re all ready to move in the plants and confidently get to work.

At its best when positioned in a corner of the garden, this potting shed is a gardener’s dream.

6’ x 6’ Traditional Wooden Potting Garden Shed with 6' Gable

It might be named ‘traditional’, but this eye-catching potting shed features a very fashionable design.

The clean, contemporary lines and smart pent roof speak of a thoughtful gardener who’s not stuck in their ways, while the charming stable-style door shows that you realise en vogue doesn’t always mean avant garde.

An entire side of this potting shed is glazed, so your plants will enjoy a feast of natural light.

There’s also a separate opening window which, together with the stable-style door, allows you to regulate the temperature when you’re hard at work inside.

Other notable features include a full-length integral potting bench, a weatherproof felt roof cover, premium 12mm cladding (including the floor and roof!) and a beautiful smooth-planed finish.

This market-leading potting shed is available in a range of sizes, so there’s sure to be one perfect for your own outdoor space.

To top it all, if you select the optional upgrade, we convert the timber to pressure-treated 15mm tongue and groove cladding with a fantastic 15-year anti-rot guarantee.

This means there’s no need for time-consuming, costly treatments, leaving you more time and money to devote to your plants. Happy days.

10’ x 6’ Windsor Shiplap Wooden Apex Greenhouse Combi Shed

Perhaps you’re tempted by the style of a greenhouse but are beginning to warm to the idea of the additional garden storage benefits offered by a potting shed?

If so, being Shedstore, we have the perfect answer for you – a greenhouse potting shed combi!

Available in 3 different sizes, to cater for all of our customers’ needs, this versatile potting shed has it all.

The potting section provides as much natural light as a greenhouse and includes an opening window vent on the roof, providing the perfect conditions for your plants to thrive.

The door to this greenhouse is fitted with elegant decorative hinges and can be fastened by turn buttons.

But what about my expensive gardening tools, we hear you say?

Well, there’s a special garden storage shed section at the rear of the greenhouse, especially for them. It has its own door, fitted with a pad bolt, to keep everything secure.

Other key features include 12mm shiplap cladding, FSC®-certified wood, a mineral felt roof cover and a 10-year guarantee.
