Potting Sheds.
My daughter has a yearning for a potting shed with a glass roof, has anyone any experience of these and best place to purchase.
Thank you.



Hi Valadel, I have never seen a potting shed with a glass roof, they usually have a sloping window on the front,
very nice if you don,t have a garden shed already, but other than thatI consider them a luxury that I can manage without, they,re quite expensive nowadays, why not just buy, or better still make a potting bench, and use it in the greenhouse, or the garden shed, they also take up valuable growing space, Derek.

We had a large shed erected when our old shed died a death and call it the potting shed and it has a small greenhouse connected to it which houses our show plants in plunge beds that can't sit outdoors over winter. To me it is no more than a large shed where we do all sorts of thing like putting up and un-potting bulbs. Sorting seed for various seed exchanges, storing all sorts of bits an pieces - including the tumble drier and a freezer both of which are in use as such and an old fridge where himself stores seeds etc. Glass roof - can't imagine it myself...

Potting sheds don't usually have glass roofs - my dad's certainly didn't, never seen one with a glass roof. Be a bit hot in there in summer I'd have thought, specially for potting up plants and cuttings.
