We are building a shed this summer -- I have convinced my husband to hand over an area 12'X 6' that will be dedicated to my gardening supplies etc. Does anyone have something in their shed/greenhouse that they would not do without. A friend has an old sink mounted in order to collect messy dirt after potting. Any other ideas for me?

I put in a 10 x 10 vinyl shed last year. Double doors for wide stuff, skylights for sunlight, vinyl flooring for easy cleanup.

So you're not tripping over the hoe while you're moving the weedwhacker out of the way to get the lawnmower, I strongly suggest hooks, cleats, shelves, etc for anything and everything so that the floor is left relatively clear. Enjoy - the planning is the fun part... Cheers GardenGnome

While it's not in my shed, but in my basement right now, I've got a potting bench I wouldn't do without. Have had too many other reasons for a sore back that I don't want to aggravate doing containers, transplanting seedlings, potting up cuttings etc. The drawers keep all the little items together (pens, tags, twist ties tec.) And I bought one of those plastic table-top trays that are great for mixing soil for containers and generally keeping things clean. See Lee Valley's or Vesey's Tidy Tray.
