For those of you who may be newer to gardening, a potting shed is a small garden building designed to make repotting plants and starting new seedlings an easy task...and we're so excited to announce the addition of a brand new potting shed at Calgo!

Now you can choose your plants, pots, and accent pieces and put them all together in a comfortable and convenient space set up just for you! You bring your imagination (and a willingness to get your hands a little dirty) and we've got everything else covered, including soil and tools—all within arm's reach. And here's the really good part—when you use the potting shed at Calgo, there's no mess to clean up at home!

Connect with nature as you nurture your plants—and your soul.

Have questions or need some help? No problem! One of our gardening experts will walk you through or point you in the right direction. Few things in life are more gratifying than planting, nurturing, and watching plants grow.

And can we remind you how convenient the potting shed is? Everything. Is. Right. Here.

So here's what we suggest:

  1. Wander the greenhouse and/or grounds to find the plants that speak to you;
  2. Choose a pot that you fall in love with;
  3. Bring your plant(s) and pot(s) to the potting shed table;
  4. Fill your pot(s) using the potting soil provided;
  5. Add your plant(s) and accent pieces;
  6. Brush off your hands and admire your new creation!

We recommend waiting until you get home to thoroughly water your now thirsty plant—just don't forget to do it.

 

If you're in search of a new "Mommy/Daddy & Me" activity, you're definitely going to want to put this one on your list. Connect with your child (or any other family members) by spending time together nurturing nature. It's good for the soul. AND, the shed is big enough to be both socially engaging but accommodate social distancing.

Prefer to reserve some private time in the potting shed? Call ahead and we can accommodate your request.

Remember, the potting shed was designed with your comfort and convenience in mind.
