Robust, durable and exceptionally easy to assemble, the 8 x 6 Forest Shiplap Potting Shed (1.8m x 2.4m) is made in Great Britain and comes with a superb 10-year anti-rot guarantee.Expertly designed and constructed by one of Britains leading shed manufacturers, this wooden shed is built from premium 12mm shiplap tongue and groove cladding on a strong 28mm frame.The smaller panels and more extensive framing make this potting shed far stronger than a standard shed. The modular design also means the panels are less prone to warping and supremely weathertight.Built from 14mm solid-timber boards, the floor is pressure-treated to prevent rot and perfectly equipped to store your heavier items.

The roof is constructed from 8mm OSB and fitted with a superior mineral felt cover for enhanced weatherproof protection.Smooth-planed barge boards and 2 finials round off an attractive, traditional appearance, which is sure to complement the rest of your garden beautifully. The timber used is FSC®-certified, which is the only wood-certification scheme endorsed by all of the major environmental charities.You can gain easy access to this 8×6 shed via a single door, which can be positioned at either end of the shed, and with a left or right-hand opening.

It is ledged, braced and fitted with a pad bolt, so rest assured that your valuable tools and invaluable plants will be safe from unwanted attention (padlock not supplied).Ten fixed windows allow an abundance of natural light to flow into the shed, while 2 further opening windows provide you with welcome ventilation on a hot, sunny day. These windows also ensure that your plants enjoy the conditions they need to thrive.

The glazing is made from PET, so is far stronger than standard horticultural glass, will never discolour and is completely shatterproof, making it the perfect glazing for a potting shed in a busy, family-orientated garden.We supply 2 sets of 2-tier staging, providing you with ample space for your plant pots, seed trays and growbags. Position this staging next to the fixed windows or in the corners of the shed the choice is entirely yours.This potting shed for sale is delivered to you dip-treated. You must coat it in a quality wood preservative, once a year, to maintain its handsome appearance and validate the superb 10-year anti-rot guarantee.A full set of fixings and clear assembly instructions are both included.

Together with the modular design, this should help you achieve an easy installation.We also stock some great products to customise your shed. These include heavy-duty, height-adjustable shed shelves and a solar power station. The latter is simple to instal and allows you to power your shed with free, eco-friendly electricity perfect for lighting, laptops and more.
