Cedar potting bench, potting table, call it what you want! Someone is going to win it!

I am delighted to be part of the Gardener’s Supply Company’s product review program. Recently they sent me this FABULOUS potting bench to review for my honest feedback. Well, if you can’t tell already, it was love at first sight! This high quality, easy to assemble potting table was exactly what I needed. And, I am excited to host this giveaway because one lucky reader is going to WIN their very own bench! <!–more–>

Are you ready to win?

To enter today’s giveaway, leave a comment below – tell me your favorite thing to plant! One entry per person, please.

Comments will close by 9:00 a.m. EST on Friday, March 25th.

✿The winner will be chosen by Random Number Generator and announced in this post shortly thereafter.

Here’s my story:

Many years ago I purchased a potting bench from a local antique dealer. The bench was made from 100 year old barn wood; it was big and heavy (not very functional) but I liked it. However, the antique piece was more like art in the garden then a ‘true’ functional gardening essential. I placed the bench in the far corner of my backyard knowing I would never really use it; it was very cool looking, don’t get me wrong.

After ten years or so, the old bench rotted away and was dismantled for fire wood. Since then, I have wanted a new potting bench for years – one I could actually use for gardening! I see many DIY tables on the Internet and they are quite nice. But I am not crafty enough to build my own so I admire them from afar. Then Gardener’s Supply Company asked if I thought my friends (YOU) would be interested in winning one. Well, as you can imagine, I squealed ‘YES!

A few days later, two large boxes were delivered to my home. Guess what was in them? This lovely cedar potting bench for me to assemble and review. Now it’s March in Michigan; there’s not a lot of gardening happening so receiving anything garden related this time of year is like Christmas all over again. I didn’t care how cold it was outside, my new gardening toy would soon be assembled in my family room and placed outside immediately.

Let’s get down to business:

My job was to assemble the bench first and swoon over it later. I mentioned earlier, I am not super handy at building things but this was easy to assemble, I even surprised myself. There were eight screws for the base and a few others, that’s it! Here’s some pictures of not-so-handy me effortlessly assembling my new bench.

Potting Bench Assembly 2

There are only eight screws to assemble the base. Easy peasy!

 

Potting Bench Assembly 3

An Allen wrench was included. It made assembling so easy!

 

Potting Bench Assemby 1

I used a power drill for the 4 screws that hold the top shelf to the base, that’s all!

 

Potting bench with dry sink

Dry sink with a plastic bin for soil! Just what the gardener ordered!

 

Potting bench with tool hooks

There are 4 forged hooks for gardening tools. The power drill came in handy here, too!

 

My new potting bench

Ta Da! That’s me and my new potting bench – hurry up spring!

Here are some highlights:

  • Lovely potting station with a lot of work surface for gardening
  • Both sides on top slide open for easy access to the dry sink
  • Bottom shelf is perfect for storing watering cans and extra pots
  • Upper shelves add more storage
  • Handy hooks for gardening tools
  • Rot resistant attractive Western red cedar with plated steel hardware

FYI: Gardener’s Supply Company is on Facebook, Twitter: @gardenerssupply and Instagram: gardeners.

Friends, I am so excited for you all. Please tell your friends, share the love and joy because someone is going to be a winner…good luck!

    I look forward to spring and summer as I love to get my hands dirty! Have so many bulbs popping up now and my trees are budding out too! I have perennials in my large garden, flowering bushes and trees, plus do annuals. Unfortunately can’t have veggies as our trees are over 100′ tall and we have too much shade so they get very tall – the veggies-
    . But I do love my hydrangeas as I have mostly blue- varying shades – purple and white.I have lived on Cape cod where they grow all over and get gorgeous with the very deep blue!
    I would love to have the potting bench as I do not have a dedicated one and have to improvise with all planting and care of my gardens all around my house!!!

      I love this pitting bench! It is exactly what I’ve wanted. I love to do container gardening with all kinds of different plants in the summer. I especially love tough, drought tolerant plants. I hope I win!

  • By Linda Brown - Reply

    Where to begin……I can’t choose a favorite thing to pot! I love to pot up everything! My sweet pup used to either dig up or lay in everything that I planted in the ground so I’ve learned to pot my garden, hanging baskets and pots all over! Benches make it so much easier and are pretty too! What a place to hang out, love the look of this bench.
    Thanks, Linda

    I’m new to gardening, so I’m enjoying everything about the whole process of planting new flowers and starting a veggie garden in raised beds. My favorite flowers are mini sunflowers and tulips and tiger lilies so far. I’d love to have the chance to win this bench. My kitchen table has been my friend to get my seedlings ready when it’s too cold out.I live in Canada and in one of the coldest provinces. It would also keep my table clear of dirt.
    Thanks

    Hard to choose one thing that is my favorite to plant, so I will choose peas. They get to go in the ground early, and nothing compares to fresh peas!

  • By Kathy Lee - Reply

    I love your site and all of your wonderful post and ideas! I love to garden! I am a high school math teacher and days can get pretty stressful. When I come home after those tough days, and weeks I love to spend time outside planting, weeding, tiding and just getting lost in the gardens. Gardening is the best way to release the stress! We recently found about 100 old windows and are going to build a greenhouse. This potting bench would be a perfect start to my new greenhouse! My favorite thing to plant is zinnias and marigolds. My mother always planted these in her garden and they remind me of her and they make me smile 😊

  • By Lynne Majewski - Reply

    I love to plant all different kinds of flowers throughout my property, so that they bloom at different seasons, allowing everyone to enjoy them all year long. I also love coming up with different ideas for potting annuals , displaying them in unique objects that catch everyone’s eye. 😊

    I cannot wait to get out in the yard and get the garden ready for planting. I grow a multitude of vegetables and enough to sustain us until the next crop is ready the next year. I have 9 different gardens in every nook and cranny around the yard. I have been complemented over and over for my lack of weeds in my gardens, I call that weed therapy. I have the perfect spot for that potting bench and I have wanted one for years.

I will plant flowers for birds and butterflies. I would like to win this. I would put it at my daughters place. She is going to have a garden for us. I really enjoy your posts. Thank you!

  • By Darla Feeheley - Reply

    My favorite thing to plant are those bulbs/cuttings and segments of plants from gardens of my friends and family. We all love to sip wine and do our own little garden tours at each other’s homes. I had a very dark purple lilac and a pussy willow tree that I shared cuttings with my sister and friend Thea. In return I received beautiful separated Day Lilies from my sister and fast spreading Liriope for my shade garden from my friend Thea.
    I also love to purchase the plants on sale at the end of the season that look like they need a lot of care and rehabilitation…it’s the challenge and sometimes the surprise of what comes from the unmarked half-dead brown clump that would have otherwise been thrown out.

    My favorite thing to plant are tomatoes, love the first tomatoes

  • By Susan Baker - Reply

    I can barely stand it when we begin getting a touch of spring. I’ve already placed all my plants outside on the front porch. Should we have a little cold spurt I will cover them with a sheet or blanket. My tulips have shot up, (no tulips yet.) My hostas are about 3″ tall in several areas around the yard. I am working right now on creating a little retreat area surrounded by flowers and plants. I put a table with chairs and umbrella in the area. Also a lounge chair and another set of chairs with a smaller table. I love planting. Hosta’s are my most favorite. Roses I love. I can’t think of anything I don’t like planting.

  • By Deb ford - Reply

    I love to plant just about anything. I have two raised beds and many potted plants. Gardening is a passion and a distraction from the seriousness of having a husband who has suffered a stroke. I have spent many hours in the hospital planning a garden on paper.
    I grow herbs to strawberries and vegetables. Would be a great help to have a potting bench.

    I’ve always wanted to have a potting bench. I just saved plans for one using pallets but this would be so much better.
    Impatiens are my favorite flower to plant. Love to have them growing everywhere.

  • By Una Byers - Reply

    I must say, I do love my hostas. Planting, dividing, moving them around and sharing divisions with friends. But sadly, my ash tree is coming down any day now and there goes a lot of my shade so all the hosta plants beneath will need to move. But there is a bright side, more light for the veggie garden! So I will need a potting bench as I don’t have one now and I have just the spot for it, behind the garage! 🙂

I have a new perennial bed I’m working on as well and enjoy watching as the sprouts pop up through the ground in the spring. I would love to have this bench!!!

    love getting vege seeds and starting them off. Having been years without a garden, I now love the fact I can once more get outside into my own yard and grow veges!!! Gardening restores, refreshes and heals every part of your being, it should be compulsory, and part of every schooling!

    Spring is my absolute favorite time of year. Memphis is my hometown, and when the trees begin to develop new leaves and buds, the color of the green is like no other that I have seen. Just like you, my previous potting bench finally rotted, and I have been on the lookout for another one that is actually functional. This one looks llke just what I need to help me with the transplanting of my tomatoes and peppers into my 4’x4′ veggie gardens.

I am extremely eclectic, I LOVE to play in the dirt; I have herbs, veggies, flowering bushes, trees (fruit, ornamental and regular) various wild grasses and Wild Flowers galore. I collect the seeds each year to ‘help’ nature along the following year. I save my veggie seeds by using only ‘heirloom’ plants.

    This is a beautiful bench. Of course, I hope I win, but I wish best of luck to all entries.

    Hard to pick a favorite, but the last couple of years I’ve enjoyed splitting and sharing/swapping with other folks in town whom I’ve found through our local FB page.

    OOhh Ive never had a potting bench, would make my gardening a lot easier. Ive had 2 back surgerys and ive been told to take it easy on gardening. But I can’t I just love it so much. My kids say I need intervention but I will never stop buying plants, its great therapy to enjoy gardening. I worked at a garden center before I had to retire due to back issues, best job ever being surrounded by beautiful plants everyday I miss it. There are 2 cemetaries that I go to and fix up total strangers gardens by their headstone. Just something I started doing a few years ago, while I’m doing my brothers plot. Gardening will always be a passion, thank you for this opportunity. I Love Two Women & a Hoe you post suck lovely flower pics. Thank you 🙂

    I just purchased my first house and I am trying to get some curb appeal going. I have a covered porch with lots of room for hanging baskets and potted plants. Right now all of my garden tools are mixed in with my regular tools so it takes me twice as long to do a project . I live in Northwest Indiana and I can’t wait for Spring to arrive. My plan is to do my porch first and then begin tackling my backyard which right now only has grass . I love the gardening ideas that Two Women post on facebook and now I want to create some of these ideas in my yard .

    From Tennessee everyone knows tomatoes are legendary! Fried green tomatoes, BLTs and eating straight off the vine. Tomatoes are my favorite to start from seed for a wide variety of traits and them transplant into my garden. A potting area would be delightful. Happy gardening!

    I didn’t grow up with any type of gardening. I grew up in the Projects of East L.A. in California. When I was a teen we moved to the south west side of Los Angeles. We moved into a house. It was my first time living in a house. By then I was a troubled teen. One afternoon I was sitting on the porch smoking a cigarette, I was 14 years old, and a lady accross the street noticed I was young and smoking while my mother was inside, so she knew I was given up on. She called me over and asked me if I can help her plants flowers. I told her I knew nothing g about planting or flowers. She said that it was okay and had me dig holes. Her front yard looked amazing after we were done. She then kept in touch with me and had me go over and help her garden every week. She told me I was a natural and had a green thumb. At that time I was “too cool” to show any emotion, but deep down it felt good to know someone cared and taught me that I did indeed have something to give to the earth. Since then I been gardening. Gardening became my therapy, my escape from reality, my life. Gardening changed my life. Now I’m grown and have my own home and have two kids and they garden with me. I don’t really buy plants, I rescue them. When people throw out plants I take then home and nurse them back to life. I love propagating plants sharing them with my nueghbors. Especially succulents, those are my favorite. I’m sorry if my post was too long, I never shared this story with anyone, but I do think about that lady who changed my life often.

    Flower gardening has been my therapy since my husband passed away from colon cancer at the too young age of 44 in 2005. I can think and pray and dream and plan while I’m digging in the dirt. I love flowers and especially the spring bulbs. Those first glimpses of the early crocus, followed by the daffodils is the promise of warm weather yet to come. And, I just married a wonderful man 2 months ago who now is helping me with some yard projects I’ve been dreaming about! Fingers crossed to win this beauty! Thanks!

As to what I must plant each year it would be annual Salvias, especially ‘Lady in Red’ and ‘Hot Lips’, and others like them in different colors. They really attract the butterflies, hummingbirds, and Hawk moths.

    Love all flowers but my favorite to plant are coneflowers. Most importantly, THE DEER DON’T EAT THEM as they’re native to Michigan. They’re perennials and maintenance free. They spread and fill up my garden—and surprise me every year because I don’t know where they’re going to come up. They bloom later and look beautiful when others are fading away.The tall, dried stems sticking out of the snow remind me, in the middle of winter, that another spring will come. And, lastly they come in countless colors and textures so that I never get tired of checking out the new ones.

    Growing up as the daughter, and granddaughter, of avid gardeners I inherited my green-thumb! I love planting and growing all sorts of things from wildflowers to veggies to tropical hibiscus and orchids to beautiful trees (southern magnolia is my favorite with the northern magnolia a close second). I’ve been chomping at the bit to get my veggie garden started, but it’s just a bit too early to put most of the plants out. That doesn’t mean I don’t have them started in my mini-greenhouse in my “plant room”. 🙂 I could really give this potting bench a workout year round! I really try to grow my own veggies, and put them up for the winter, to try to get away from all of the GMOs and other crud and poisons in our food supply. I believe that is the source of many of the disease processes that we suffer from today in society. We eat too much frankenfood. And, I just can’t get enough of beautiful flowering colors and interesting looking plants. I have a potted tree / bush called a Zig-Zag that I resurrected from a clearance bin at Lowes. It’s happy and thriving. I enjoy rooting cuttings from my house plants and sharing them with family and friends. My life would not be nearly as rich without getting my hands in the dirt and growing beautiful and tasty things! These are the gifts that God has given us to enjoy, so why not enjoy and share them?!

    I love planting flowers in pots or in the ground. Most of all I love to plant flowers that my mom passes to me from her yard. She has an amazing green thumb. I also have her massive fig trees and chevaliers . She had banana trees that she gave me. At one point I had raised 35 banana trees. I live in the south and keep these various trees in pots on my deck and around the pool. They are gorgeous but my hubby doesn’t like when we move them in the fall. He built me a. Green house and though it’s a job to move them twice a year , it’s worth it . Thanks for the opportunity to enter and share my love for flowers and plants.

    I love to grow flowers. Of all kinds, but the ones I love most are Tea Roses. I have had them for many years and last year we had a hard frost in the spring and it killed almost all of them. Sad, yes, but now I get to start over! I also enjoy having a garden and this year I am in a little cottage that has a yard that is just wide open to possibilities. I am going to put raised beds in and on the walls of the fence, vertical planters made from pallets. It’s so exiting! I will put a walkway through the garden and I make stepping stones, so will put those down. They are very pretty and will add color to the whole of what I am trying to create. I will have a water feature made from bird baths that I also use leaves for and I am so exited to see it all done! So you see, a Potter’s Bench sure would come in handy! Thank you for letting me blather on!!

I have almost always had a vegetable garden and flower gardens. I am retired now so I can get outside and work in my yard when ever I want. I have a small yard which is mostly flowers and a vegetable garden! I enjoy the people walking by and stopping to admire my flowers, it gives me great pleasure to see their smiles. I make my own hanging baskets so this bench would be awesome! I love Lilies, petunias, roses, zinnias, maragolds, mums, tulips, daffodils, pinks, I love them all! I have won a prize for my yard 3 times since I moved her in 2006. My house burned in 2007. My yard was destroyed in the process of removing my burnt house and then moving my new home on the lot. I cried it looked so aweful. But after picking up 20-25 bags of burnt boards, insulation, shingles, etc, I worked so hard to make it pretty again. I have many different types of plants and flowers much more than I had before the fire! I am always planting or repotting! My geraniums that I keep inside over the winter need repotting so this bench would be awesome!

I planted them, and waited and waited, and waited. Finally about seven of them began to sprout. I nurtured them tenderly and watched them grow until finally, just this year they have started to bloom. It’s very exciting to see what they will look like. Each one is different. I now allow all of my iris blooms to go to seed and I’m planting them see what blooms mother nature will bring me next. So yes, it’s Iris seeds!

    I Don’t think I have one favorite thing to plant. I have a home daycare and many of the children live in apartments. And even more have no idea where the food they eat comes from. So several year ago I took it upon myself to educate “hands-on” about the processes of growing your own food, composting, recycling and saving our planet! To make a long story short, the children look forward to gardening season [we live in Iowa and Winters can be long] We all get involved in planning the garden, selecting the crops, caring for them…they actually LOVE PULLING WEEDS, and get so excited to choose recipes to feature the foods we grow. And on those good years, when we have an over abundance, the parents get to take home fresh vegetables for their dinner table!!!

    So overall I guess you could say that I’m growing a healthier community… which means my favorite thing to plant would be the seeds within each child to love gardening!

    After trashing up our garage for years with shelves and bags of soil and mulch and plants sitting on every possible surface, my husband finally insisted on having cabinets put in the garage a few years ago. But I really want a potting bench outside, where I can be in the garden and work on pots, etc. My favorite thing to plant is daffodils. In my opinion, there is nothing more beautiful and welcoming than the first daffs that bloom in the winter/spring garden. They brighten every day until it is fully gardening season again.

We are learning what herbs, vegies, fruits and flowers will be growers and successful in the tropical Houston area. I am so excited. It’s all new and I can’t wait for the harvesting to begin.

    Hello! I would really love to win this bench for my mother! She is 80 yrs young, and is still gardening!! She has a natural green thumb…she has a hard time bending down and doing her potting on the ground, so I though hey what if she had something like this? She loves peonies, carnations, any flower that she can cut and bring into the house to smell their beauty. Thank you for this opportunity of the chance to win one!

    Love the Gardening Bench!! I have been doing container gardening, since my small yard is mostly shaded during the day. I love to pot herbs and cherry tomatoes on my patio……just within picking distance from my back door! Also, trying my hand at creating my own hyper-tufa containers for succulents. Always love being outside and taking care of my yard.

    Beautiful garden bench, and it would be great for me to share with my Aunt Therese. She’s 84 years young, and likes to work in the garden, but has difficulty getting up and down. It would be great for her to have this so she can stand and fill her pots, etc. It would also be great to store her gardening tools as well. I go over to help with the beds, trees, and shrubs, so it would help me as well.

    I have a small yard full of perennials but have been focusing my energy this year on starting different types of lavender, catmint, augastache, and other rabbit deterrents to line the perimeter of my yard and flower beds to try to deter the huge woods rabbits we have here in my rural area, which for the past few years have been destroying my flower gardens. I recently turned only 57 years old but I am disabled so I can only plant for short periods of time and I cannot lift over ten pounds at one time so potting soil and all my gardening items have to be transferred to a bucket in small amounts and carried to my patio table so I can pot things, and back to their storage spaces when I am finished. A potting bench like this would be such an energy saver as well as a time saver for me since I would have an area to keep all my gardening items together and not have to place them in multiple areas both inside my home and outside in my tiny shed. I may be disabled but I will not give up my gardening until there is a breath left in me. Gardening, even if I can only do it in small amounts of time, is my greatest joy.

    This potting bench is what dreams are made of! I would absolutely LOVE to have this in my yard!! I enjoy gardening so much – it just frees the soul. We plant tomatoes in containers so the squirrels don’t get them. I have plants everywhere inside and outside. My favorite thing to plant for the porch hanging baskets and shepherd hook plants are wave petunias. I love purple, so I buy various shades of purples, pinks, and whites – then just mix them up in the planters. I must have a green thumb for petunias, because they grow huge and oh, so beautiful!. Outside, I also have several varieties of peonies, irises, daffodils, naked ladies, and azaleas. This summer, I plan on creating a wildflower garden as well. Looking forward to assembling my new potting bench!

    I would so like to have this bench as I start most of my garden plants myself. I usually end up transplanting on my kitchen counter. I grow a large garden to share with my neighbors and anyone else I know in need. I would also like to start my own flowers asci decorate a lot around my house in large pots to conserve water. I think petunias are my favorite, especially the purple because of their fragrance, color and the attraction to hummingbirds. They serve duel purpose, beauty for me, food for the birds.

    I’m outdoors as soon as the weather allows, working in my gardens, doing yard work, repotting plants, starting new projects, or finishing up projects from the previous year. If it’s raining, I put on my rain gear. The only thing that gets me indoors is lightening and then I’m in one of my out buildings working on some project I have going on. The potting bench would be a God send for me and I could use it year round. In the fall I take cuttings from various trees and shrubs in my yard and get them started to give to friends in the Spring. In the winter I start house plants to give away. It would really be a great help in so many ways and I could actually have a regular work station set up so I wouldn’t have to be hauling things to different locations and setting up tables anymore. It will be a Great addition I’m sure to whom ever wins.

    We located to a small 4 acres in the midwest just over 1o years ago. Unfortunately the region’s trees have been damaged with great loss to ash and elms. Our personal property has lost 40 year old pines and several soft maples that are winding down their lives. I still plant bulbs and more and more butterfly and bird gardens, but I am loving planting new trees! Luckily most of what we planted over teh decade gives us plenty of babies to spread across the property. I also transplant tiny volunteer dogwoods and redbuds that pop up in our woods as under-story trees to the remaining large cover trees. I delight in introducing lindens, and a variety of other trees, that resist our local pests. We may not be here to enjoy them, but the wildlife and subsequent owners will! Meanwhile we have been rewarded with an increase in the bird and butterfly visits.

Not only was I able to take good care of my indoor plants at this bench (snipping, feeding, transplanting), but it served as a buffet and bar when we had guests over for year-round parties! I could use the tub for ice, keeping foods cold or for drinks (lining the tub first)! I would set condiments on the shelves. Align soda boxes along the bottom for guests beverage choices. I could go on and on! Love to have this multi-purpose bench again! Brings back a lot of memories!

    My favorite plants are water lilies in my pond. The combination of their pads, which serve as a resting place for frogs and dragon flies. together with their blooms, create a beautiful aquatic scene for about 7-8 months of the year. Their life span is short (approx. 2-3 days) but they make way for more blooms continuously. I love to accent the pond both within the water and around the perimeter of the water feature such that color bursts the entire Spring thru Fall Seasons. I look forward to our Ponds’ Spring cleaning in a few weeks, so that the Lilies can be spruced up, fed, and prepped for new growth. My garden truly becomes my Paradise for months of enjoyment.

    I really didn’t get into much in the way of flowers and/or gardening until after my mother passed away in 2011. She left me the house and grounds (oh, about 1 1/2 acres) and my husband and I decided the place could use a little updating. We haven’t raised a garden in a couple of years, but we have gotten into the flowers and shrubs. We had some silver maple trees cut down, removed some shrubs that weren’t doing well and tidied everything else up with either decorative stone or just pruning. We added a couple of knock-out rose bushes, a neon flash, day lilies, four-o-clocks, salvia, azaleas, mophead hydrangea, lilac bush, 2 redbuds, 2 dogwoods and an asiatic lily. We usually purchase something new to plant about every spring and I love the asiatic lilies. Digging online, I learned that I could pull the bulbs from the lily n the fall and just replant them to get more lilies. I started out with one yellow lily 3 yrs. ago and I purchased an orange ‘double u’ asiatic lily last summer. After separating the bulbs from both, I have about 15 new lilies sprouting up this spring. I’m excited!! I want lilies all over the place. LOL I’d love to have a potting bench to put on my little deck with my tools close at hand. They are scattered in the garage and in the house at present and we are dealing with ongoing rennovations inside the house. No place for much of anything. LOL A bench would definitely do a world of good!
