The potting bench is painted and stained to match the house.
There is a large bucket for dirt on the left hand side under the bench. This is actually under a part that lifts up with hardware cloth and there is a tray to catch the excess dirt so it can go back in the bigger pot.
I actually love it and as you can tell its been getting used quite often.
In the wintertime I always put the fragile pots in the greenhouse and sometimes the plants live but sometimes they don’t. The ones on the bench the small fern on the left lived the big pot was repotted and now is thriving.
I always think about moving these after I have watered them and they are very heavy to move then.
I buy the small bowls at Dollar General or on clearance to have to put plants in for small gifts.
The aloe vera or some of the other succulents or sedums like lemon balm work well in the bowls. Right now on the back porch I have a few with airplane plants in them. Even the pothos or Ivy work well for a good while in the small containers.
The plastic wicker chair has seen its better days its been around about 10 years and I had bought 6 of them at Big Lots they use to be on the back porch until the rockers rotted off so we took those off and now its a very short chair to sit in. I just like the way it looks by the potting bench.
The trumpet vine graces the top of the back of the potting bench as a garland of sorts but it gives the bench the perfect touch.
Planting new plants in the yards or in planters is very relaxing for me and it soothes my soul.
