Boasting sturdy tongue and groove cladding and a solid timber floor, Forest’s UK-made 8 x 6 Shiplap Potting Shed perfectly blends a high-quality design with a premium timber finish for the ideal growing solution. With the flexibility to hinge the lockable door at either end of the building on either the left or right side of the gable end, you can conveniently customise the layout of your potting shed to suit your available garden space.

At its core, this quality FSC® certified timber shed is designed with security and durability in mind. The smart modular design makes this build stronger and easier to construct than other garden sheds, leaving the panels less at risk of warping. Its sturdy tongue and groove cladding offers improved weather resistance, and the solid timber boarded floor can endure heavy footfall for many years to come. Ample light is provided by the 10 fixed windows and two opening windows that ensure fresh air flow passes through to ventilate your plants, manufactured from shatterproof PET for a safer solution for busy family gardens.

As this potting shed is supplied with two sets of two-tier plant staging, you can tailor the space to suit your needs, whether you remove them to make space for taller pots or set your staging together under the fixed windows to optimise light exposure or position at the back of the potting shed. The Forest Shiplap Potting Shed is delivered with all required fixings and easy to follow instructions for speedy self-assembly, so that you can look forward to bringing your plants, flowers and veg to life in style with the reassurance of Forest’s 10-year anti-rot guarantee.

We’re proud to stock a wide range of Protek Royal Exterior paint in over 60 colours to perfectly customise your Forest Shiplap Potting Shed to suit your style, making it easy to find a shade to match your garden setting. Though we've included some of our most popular colours with this product, you can browse the full range of Protek Royal Exterior Wood Finish Paint here to find the colour that's perfect for you
