The Planthouse Potting Shed potting shed is a versatile shed, designed to offer the storage space of a traditional shed, and the sunny interior of a greenhouse as the windows that wrap around the front of the shed allow the natural light to flood in. The 2 tier shelving units are ideal for storage of garden tools and potted plants. With a spacious interior, the Planthouse Potting Shed is the ideal building for both potting plants or simply pottering in the garden.
Pressure Treatment is an effective way of making your shed last longer. This is an extra step in the construction process where the wood is treated in a pressurised tank. Chemical preservatives are forced deep into the wood’s fibres to resist rot, decay and termites, designed for up to 15 years protection. The Pressure Treatment gives your building a slightly green hue to begin with, but over time this will age and turn to a beautiful warm brown colour.
Yes! Feel free to explore the versatility of the Planthouse Potting Shed. Decide to place the doors on the left or right side of the shed, so you can build the Planthouse Potting Shed to suit your garden space.

All garden buildings should be assembled on a firm and level base. A base will ensure your building has a solid, long-lasting and well-drained foundation.

If you want to build your own base, from a sturdy material such as concrete or flagstones, you can find minimum dimensions for each size of this building in the tech specs. In order to protect your building from moisture, you should leave a 2ft gap around the exterior of your building, so remember to take this into consideration when laying any sort of base.

Our robust and simple to use EcoBase provides you with a firm, long-lasting foundation with suitable drainage for your garden building. It is quick and easy to install through the use of snap connectors that link the grids to each other.

The BillyOh Planthouse Potting Shed is designed with shatter-resistant plastic (SAN). SAN is used for its UV properties and the tougher finish avoids breakages when compared to the properties of glass shattering.
If the building is shorter than 2.5m tall you should not require planning permission, (unless it’s more than 50% of your garden or to be put in your front garden). Planning permission rules can vary by area so we would strongly recommend checking your local council rules before ordering from us.
We do not offer an installation service on any of our buildings, our buildings are designed & made to be easy and simple to assemble. Using the assembly instruction included and with a team of just 2 people and a bit of DIY knowledge you can expect to have your BillyOh building up within a day, or as little as 3-4 hours with some of our smaller buildings.
Our summerhouses and sheds are delivered in easy to assemble panels. For your convenience, the panels are no wider than 4ft so they can be easily manoeuvrable and fit through a standard doorway.
Your order can be tracked through the account section on our website or by contacting us directly. You will be contacted after your order by our helpful care team to arrange delivery of your building.

We offer a pay by finance option on any purchase over the value of £560.

Our simple finance options allow you to spread the cost of your purchase over 24, 36 or 48 months.Read more about our Pay by Finance option here.

BillyOh Apex Potting Shed

The BillyOh Apex Potting Shed is just one of our wide range of garden buildings that allows you to make the most of your outdoor space. The Apex Plant house Potting Shed comes with 2 tier windows and shelving to make the most of natural light for optimal growing.


When placing your planthouse potting shed, consider the location in your garden. If you'll be carrying plants and bags of soil and feed, place it within walking distance of your main house. You'll also want to consider the path of the sun and any obstructions like overhanging branches to give your plants the most possible natural light.

Double Doors

Double doors on this planting shed make access in and out easy, or perfect for temperature regulation and a cool breeze on a hot day.

Storage Sheds

At Garden Buildings Direct, our range of wooden sheds have always been built with utility in mind. That's why the BillyOh planthouse has ample enough storage space for the garden equipment as well.

And with a range of sizes from the 8x6 to the larger 16x6 model, you're sure to find something to fit your garden and budget.

Cladding Types - BillyOh Tongue and Groove

Most of our garden sheds (except our overlap sheds) utilise not only a tongue and groove floor but our signature BillyOh tongue and groove cladding for the roof and walls as well.

This cladding style utilises quality tongue and groove interlocking construction for a sturdy build and a tight seal against water ingress. With the BillyOh planthouse, it also lends the building and it's apex design a unique traditional style.


Our Tongue and Groove buildings come with our BillyOh 10-year guarantee against insect infestation, rot, and decay.

Planning Permission

Potting sheds fall under what's called 'permitted development' and shouldn’t require planning permission, so long as they:

  • Are single-storey
  • Aren't intended for permanent residential use
  • Don't exceed a max eaves height of 2.5m
  • Don't exceed an overall ridge height of 4m (dual-pitched roof like an apex or -reverse apex) or 3m (any other type of roof, like a pent)
  • Don't take up more than 50% of your garden area
  • Aren't build past the front wall of your house

That's why our BillyOh potting sheds are built with these height measurements in mind.These rules apply to the apex plant shed.
