Repotting Your Plant

Potting/Repotting in Your Potting Shed

Potting a plant is simply finding a pot the right size for your plant, mixing soil to the right consistency, and placing your plant in the pot. Repotting usually is necessary when a plant outgrows the pot it’s been planted in. Sometimes a plant may need to be repotted more than once. Our Garden Shed Gang has great tips to guide you through the potting maze.

Storage Inside Your Potting Shed

Just like you need shelves inside a “normal” outdoor storage shed you can also do a lot with shelves, and especially with a potting bench. Look at Mellisa’s great ideas in her Potting Bench Idea Gallery below.

Remember when putting your potting bench in place; when working at a potting bench (whether sitting on a stool or standing) your elbow should always be bent at 90 degrees for comfort

Potting Shed/Greenhouse; a Great Combination

With a potting shed/greenhouse you will be able to not only prepare and repot your plants, but keep them growing all winter long. Most potting shed/greenhouse combinations simply make use of extra windows or skylights on one side, making the greenhouse a kind of lean to.

I had a great experience from start to finish. The customer service representative were polite, responsive and very helpful. The shed is exactly as promised and seems to be built extremely well. When I compared the pricing to local competitors, Sheds Unlimited easy beat the other's prices by $300-700 and provided better options. The delivery guy was efficient, polite and managed to sqeeze the shed up our tight driveway with ease. I highly recommend them!

I was very pleased with my 18x12 shed that I had purchased. The only issue I saw was some of the studs were knotty and looked chewed.The overall structure of the shed itself was great. My co-workers and friends loved the style and color. I would recommend Shed Unlimited to anyone who is looking for looking for a shed to buy.

Randy G from Colonia NJ

The price of the shed was much lower than other places we checked, while the quality was much higher. The customer service was extremely helpful during the ordering process too. I would strongly recommend Sheds Unlimited - we are happy we did.

Ryan from York, PA

It was such an easy process from when I chose my shed to the delivery. We had about a 1/2 “ clearance on each end and Nate fit it right though. We are very happy and would highly recommend Sheds Unlimited!

Dave A from Clifton Park NY

Sheds Unlimited just finished constructing a 3 car garage on our foundation.  We had a great experience with SU, from our initial inquiries, to the planning process, to the final construction. Their crew completed the entire garage in less than two days (they worked hard and worked smart).  They did a great job working around our winter weather too.  We are very pleased with the quality of materials and craftsmanship.  Strongly recommend SU!

Morey from Bethlehem, PA

Having seen an example on my neighbor's property, I knew the quality of the products produced by Sheds Unlimited would be flawless. Thus the more important point would be the customer service I would receive. From the first phone call where all my questions were answered and I was assisted in every aspect of ordering the correct shed to meet my needs, I knew this was one great company. The shed is perfect, the delivery person was efficient and personable. I could not be happier with the experience and would highly recommend this company to all.

I looked around at many other manufacturers and these by far where the best quality sheds. Product was delivered earlier than expected and delivered in a precise and safe manner. Highly recommend Sheds Unlimited!

Keith from Shillington Pa

My shed was delivered yesterday just 7 weeks from the day it was ordered. It is not only exactly what I ordered but it exceeds my expectations. The product quality, customer service and delivery are exemplary. I will HIGHLY recommend Sheds Unlimited to any and all of my family, relatives, neighbors and friends who may be in the market for a shed or other type of outdoor building.

Shopped around and this was the best deal out there. Shed was built to last. Had to wait for delivery but it was worth it!! Very pleased with customer service.

Joe S. from Bel Air Md.

We were very happy with our experience with Sheds Unlimited. We chose a stock shed off of their lot and it was delivered 10 days after our pad site was ready.

We shopped around and found that Sheds Unlimited had the best price and quality.

Highly recommend them!
