Potting Bench

I receive many googled searches for potting bench, potting table and vintage potting bench. Since I had these stored on my computer I thought it might make some one's day today to find a whole collection of them on one page. Not to mention I still do not have a good camera and thought this may fill a post nicely.

I just love this one, up against a stone wall. I don't think I would keep books out there, however.
Here's a little space saver. In the galvanized metal. What a great idea.

How pretty is this? What a lovely shade of blue.

I adore the scalloped edge on this one.

This is a cute idea.

How easy is this? A table and some simple trellis at the back.

Storage can be as simple as a few planks held across by pots or bricks.


It really is only limited to your imagination. I have seen the simplest ones made just using a table and old wooden crates. It certainly does not have to be elaborate, it is for potting and dealing with dirt for heaven's sake.

I'm with you, I like the one in the second photo. Funnily enough, I just bought my son a radio for his birthday and it's just like the red/wooden Roberts one in this photo (but a modern version).

Oooh very pretty.
I think (I may be wrong) that Vintage Pleasure has an outdoor space somewhat like those. I may however be dreaming that!
