Potting benches are great to have for gardeners as they give you a place to pot new plants without having to worry about getting dirty, keep your tools handy, and give you a standing desk for your laptop during good weather.
Good news and bad news.
If you get an orange in your Holiday stocking you can use the peel to make a pot to start seeds for your garden.
Planning a garden of any kind isn't an easy task. Plants grow at different rates, they never grow to the size you expect, and more often than not, they don't grow at all.
If you'd like a little green companion next to your desk while you work but don't have room for a massive pot, try turning an old tea tin into a planter instead. They don't take up much space, and if you start with a seedling or a small succulent, they'll never grow large enough to repot them.
Garden pests are one of the few things I find frustrating about gardening.
