I’m not the best at helping plants to thrive (hey — I’m working on it!), but that doesn’t mean I don’t dream of having a potting shed. I mean, just look at this one from HGTVGardens reader Barbara Stanley:

Potting Shed Color Palette on HGTV's Design Happens

Potting ShedSpring Outfit

With veggies and flowers likely off to a good start, consider adding some color to ye old potting shed or potting bench. Barbara was inspired by the cherry blossoms outside her garden getaway, but your inspiration could come from anywhere — a favorite spring outfit, your exterior trim or even our color of the month (Paradise Blue!). Will a colorful potting shed make me a better gardener? I say yes — and it’s sure to help you out, too.

    I've just begun to watch this show. And I was under the impression that in order to win it is prudent to keep your purchase amounts to your self and so forth. I was terribly upset to watch an episode where the host actually informed the opposing designer of the amount they needed in order to beat the opposition. Needless to say that couple won. I'd like to think that this competition is fare all around. I hope this doesn't happen again because I'll have to find other entertainment if the competition is not going to be fair.
