    I was wondering how ya'll have your potting benches set up... I need to set up a bench and hearing and seeing what others have would help out with ideas.

    I went to Home Depot and got two plastic cement-mixing tubs They're about 20"x30" and about 10" deep.

    I set them side by side on a table in the basement (didn't want to waste greenhouse space). One is full of fresh mix, the other is the "work space". Pots, chemicals, and tools are on the table nearby.

    Plants are unpotted on a stack of newspaper sheets, then moved into the worki space for repotting.

    When I'm all done, the newspaper and "dead" medium are put in the trash, the tubs are nested, tools/chemicals placed inside and they are stored on a shelf.

    ...Man, I do my potting on the floor. Lol
    Though I use plastic totes for all my supplies.
