A gardening enthusiasts dream, the 8′ x 8′ Shire Sun Pent Wooden Garden Potting Shed (2.58m x 2.55m) is ideal for potting and growing plants, and offers great garden storage too. Whats more, its practical design provides any gardener with a spacious and attractive area to work. Constructed from 12mm tongue and groove shiplap cladding on a solid 34mm x 34mm frame, this garden shed is reassuringly strong and durable. The floor and pent roof are constructed from 12mm tongue and groove too. The former is perfectly equipped for storing heavier items and frequent footfall, while the latter has a fashionable pent design and comes with a weatherproof felt cover to keep out the rain.

Entry is gained via a single door, which is ledged, braced and can be secured by a key-operated lock. This door can be positioned either end of the potting shed. Seven windows provide the interior with an abundance of natural light, and welcome ventilation on a summers day. An integral potting bench is included in the price. A competitively-priced, professional installation service is available, although a solid, level base must be prepared in advance of delivery. This potting shed is supplied dip treated with a 10-year anti-rot guarantee, when supported with annual retreatment. An upgrade to a top coat is available for this shed.

This top coat is a wood stain that provides a waterproof coating to resist algal and fungal attack. It nourishes the wood to provide year-round colour and protection. Two coats are applied, by the manufacturer, to both the interior and exterior of the shed. As a dip-treated potting shed, it is usually recommended that the customer apply a treatment upon assembly; this top coat eliminates the need to do so. The colour of this stain is called “gold” which is an orangey-yellow. This premium potting shed comes unpainted and is available in a range of sizes. Delivery is free to most UK addresses.
