Making a potting bench

Posted: 12/07/2014 at 20:30

Edd, I thought of a small caravan type sink, but I need to be able to remove the bucket to fill with compost/water, depending what job needs doing. There is a guy who works in metal on a local farm; I could ask him about zinc.

Steve, thank you for reminding me about diagonal braces - should I have two crossing at the back? And one on each side? I will only be storing pots and seed trays underneath.

Lashings are a bit of a closed book to me, I understand primitive carpentry better

Thank you Dove; I'm not very fond of most of those mentioned, but Winter Density sounds good.

Thank you Edd and Bob for both of those suggestions.

I was going to use large gravel trays (60x40cm) on the slats, but would love a zinc top; where does one get zinc, how thin should it be so that I can hammer (?) it round the top? Could I cut it with the metal cutting blade on the jig saw?

I have been puzzling over the support for the galvanised bucket I got, supporting it at the bottom is better than wedging it in at the top.

pansyf, I have to drive for miles to get the Guardian; would you mind very much just typing out a list of what they suggest

As I was kneeling on the gravel washing seed trays, I thought there has to be a better way of doing this. So am going to make a potting bench that will double up as a pot and tray washing place. This is my design, any improvements you can think of would be gratefully received.

Nut and I have a long journey, so will probably have a picnic in the car park before we meet up. Is that still ok with you Nut? My turn to cook I think

Buddlia. Can you create a cutting for planting?

Denzil, is your icon the 'green man'? I think it is a very interesting symbol.

When should I plant out my Verbena Bonariensis?

James, where abouts are you; North, South  etc. When it said to mulch them, did it say to cut them down first?

Why does my garden look raggedy?
