A potting bench is something I’ve been dreaming about for eyars
Because dirt shouldn’t be in the kitchen (unless it’s coming off of fresh homegrown veggies!). Most of us gardeners sow seeds indoors (we have an indoor greenhouse & grow light set up) which means cleaning up soil inside, washing pots and seed trays inside (you should disinfect them, here’s why) and making a general mess inside.
Here are some potting tables and potting benches to inspire you to build your own.
I gathered these ideas as I’m hoping we come up with our own DIY potting table this summer
