A potting bench is a practical thing, but it can also become an aesthetic focal point in your garden. A potting bench in a garden shed, protected from the weather, can become a gardener’s private retreat, but even if it’s just in the shade under a tree or in a corner of the patio, it’s still like a gardener’s studio.
- Shelves for storing extra pots, a rack for hand tools, and drawers or bins for hose nozzles, twine, gloves, knee pads, and snippers.
- A bin for potting soil: use a big nursery pot, or a trash can with a lid.
- A plastic scoop is handy, or use a flower pot as a scoop.
- Plastic flower pots: you’ll need them when you dig up perennials to share with friends.
- Seed-starting supplies: fiber pots, plastic six-packs, and seed-starting potting soil.
- Plant labels.
- A watering can.
- A trug or two - or bucket for small hand tools: trowel, pruners, a weeding fork, twist-ties, and a ball of twine and scissors.
- Gardening gloves – preferably several pairs.
- A bench brush or whisk broom to keep things neat.
