potting shed

Sadly my potting shed needs replacing
Any advice on types and construction
My present one is the traditional wooden design which has been it's downfall as the wooden sill at the bottom of the glass has constantly rotted and I now have a hole in the floor.
I do like this traditional style though
I live in Sheffield and ideally would like to buy locally

    My advice would be to seek out your local garden centres or go to a show to see what's out there. If you can wait until April there might be some at the Harrogate Spring Show which isn't so far from you.

    Greetings from a fellow Dee-dar.😊

    Walton’s is a good company. Never bought a shed from them myself but have heard good things about them.

    Why not think about a greenhouse that could be a potting shed when needed?

    Something like this

    Much more useful.

    They also do a split shed/greenhouse if you are looking for storage space.

    Sorry I can't help. Have lived in Sheffield for about 30 years, but have not bought a shed for 25 years and no idea where it came from.
    Walk out to winter, swear I'll be there.
    Chill will wake you, high and dry
    You'll wonder why.

    Oh well, it was worth a try  :)

  • Thanks for all your advice. Have purchased a potting shed(traditional wood) from Shed World based in Sheffield. arrives tomorrow! Up to now have been very impressed with the company and have got an ex demo one at a much cheaper price.

    Ask Donna if she does commissions.

    Ah, missed the last posting. Otherwise I was going to recommend this. The company is quite local to you.
