This do-it-yourself potting bench makes it easy to get a head start on warm-weather gardening.

It features a generously sized work top with a hutch above for tools, seeds and small pots. Below, shelves hold larger items, and a large compartment is just right for bulky bags of potting soil, fertilizer or a covered compost container.

Best of all, the design is simple enough to build in a weekend or two, even if you’re more gardener than woodworker. That’s why our potting bench plans are so useful. The potting bench measures about 51 inches long by 24 inches deep by 65 inches tall.
