Potting Bench

  • Oh no, you missed it! This item has been discontinued


  • As seen in : Real Homes and The Guardian
  • Dimensions: W78 X D38 X H83cm
  • Made from: FSC approved pine wood with zinc top

A stylish potting bench for the green fingered to happily pot up their seedlings. Or for those that love a garden vignette as we do there is lots of display potential. We also think it looks fab for displaying house plants in a garden room or conservatory or as extra storage and work surface in a rustic kitchen. Gosh, what a versatile piece this potting bench is! Made from FSC approved pine wood, painted grey with a zinc top, three drawers and three hooks at the side for hanging utensils.

This product is flat packed and requires some experience for assembly - we recommend enlisting someone who's handy with a screwdriver! Screws included but a screwdriver is required.

This item is intended to be left outside, but as with any item (metal or wood) left outside all year round, particularly during winter, there will be some element of weathering over time. We recommend covering this item during bad weather, which will prolong the life of the product.

Good design, relatively easy to assemble and looks like it did in the Guardian review!

looks nice and will be useful. quite expensive for quite a lot of assembly - equivalent from IKEA would probably have been half the price. the holes in the frame were not aligned properly with the top so had to use a screw instead of the stronger fixing provided. shame that no handles for the drawers as difficult to open, also disappointed that used hardboard for the bases which will be useless if it gets wet and is not practical for actual outdoor use.

Audenza replied: Thanks for your review and we’re very sorry to hear you aren’t entirely happy. This item is not a quick assembly and we do mention the following on the product page: “This product is flat packed and requires some experience for assembly - we recommend enlisting someone who's handy with a screwdriver!”

The drawers do not have handles, however in our experience they can be easily opened as there is space top and bottom.  I will however pass on this feedback to our supplier.  With regard to the hardboard on the base of the drawers, this area is not exposed, so shouldn’t get wet and adding further pinewood to the base
would add extra (unnecessary) cost.
This item is intended to be left outside; each of us in the office have been using one of these in our own gardens for the last couple of years and are still looking near perfect.  You are correct though that Ikea sell items for cheaper than us, however (with the exception of the base of the drawers) this item is made from 100% FSC approved pinewood, where Ikea usually use a cheaper material inside the frame to cut costs and just a real wood outer layer.  It’s also very different in terms of the design and style to what is available through Ikea.

I am however very sorry to hear that the frame didn’t align properly, this certainly shouldn’t be the case.  I can see that you haven’t contacted us about this, so I will drop you an email now to resolve the issue.  My apologies again that you were unhappy with this item.  Kind regards, Hollie

Beautiful product, just as shown and described. Some difficulty with assembly ,where Allan key required for fixing the top, but overcome with own screws.

Audenza replied: Thanks so much for your review, we're very sorry to hear that you required extra screws to put it together.  I am however, very pleased to hear that you love it now it's assembled and in-situ.  Thanks again for your order, Hollie

Lovely product, quite difficult to put together, lots of screws. Wood didn't quite fit together properly, we had to use one of the side hangers to keep the top of the bench together.

Audenza replied: We're sorry to hear you had trouble putting this item together, but thank you for your feedback, it's very helpful.  We have added to the product info that it is not a simple assembly, just to make it clearer.  If you're able to send pictures of the fault to [email protected] then we can look into this further for you.  Thank you again for your feedback.
