Building a garden shed on a slope

The area under the greenhouse staging can be a very useful place for growing plants — provided it is not already being used to house garden oddments. Never be tempted to use the space under the staging in your greenhouse as a gardening ‘glory hole’.
Use common sense when positioning your plants; put those needing most light at the back in the case of a glass-to-ground house, and at the front when the greenhouse has a base wall. Undoubtedly the area under the staging is most versatile in a glass-to-ground greenhouse since it will receive plenty of light. Try to prevent plant debris like dead leaves, faded flowers and drips from watering from falling off the plants on the staging onto the plants below; water or organic material left lying on plant foliage for any length of time can cause brown markings or instigate rot and fungoid growth. In the case of the base wall type of house the under-stage area will probably be very gloomy. Where light is extremely poor, very many ferns will thrive and can be used simply to give decoration to what would otherwise be an uninteresting spot, or to supply cut fronds for floral decoration, or as pot ferns for the house. If the greenhouse is a warm one or, at least, has a congenial temperature in winter, many exceedingly beautiful and colourful foliage plants of a sub-tropical nature will live happily under the staging in their natural jungle habitat they would enjoy considerable shade. Plants of the GESNERIACEAE family enjoy shade, and most of them have charming foliage and delightful flowers. You can raise the temperature of the area under the staging easily and cheaply, especially when the greenhouse has a base wall that will help retain warmth. In a glass-to-ground house useful early salad crops can be raised in soil-warmed beds under the staging — lettuce, beet, radish, carrot and numerous sprouting vegetables including mustard and cress.
Where there is little or no warmth, the area can be employed for storing dormant plants over the winter and for keeping overwintering storage organs or roots such as dahlias, summer-flowering greenhouse bulbs, chrysanthemum stools and the roots of tender garden plants.
In the glass-to-ground house the under-stage area is invaluable in late winter to mid spring (January to March) when it is time to raise bedding plants and your greenhouse tends to become very overcrowded.
Our company is based in North Wales and we have been manufacturing greenhouse staging for several years now. This area is for Reference and discussion of plant hardiness, overwintering methods and tips, and planr protection. Nicely done Dave.I did something similar made from old pallets and a few bits i had lying around the garage.
Davei just wanted to thank you for your step by step instructions for building staging for the greenhouse. Here at Woodpecker Joinery we are not only renowned for the quality of our greenhouses but also for the strength and durability of our superior greenhouse staging which, as any gardener will be aware, is an essential addition for the internal growing area.
Cedar contains naturally occurring preservatives which means our staging is naturally resistant to rot, which means no chemical treatment is ever required to preserve the product. Our premium cedar staging is assembled using stainless steel fixings through out, which further extends the products life time and removes the possibility of any rust stain marks occurring.
Over the years we have been asked to design and manufacture strong functional greenhouse staging. We are extremely proud of our Goliath staging because we believe it is probably the strongest available on the market.
The Goliath range of FOLDING staging is made from planed tanalised timber giving both strength and top quality finish. All the folding staging has a height of approx 3ft and comes with a lower shelf that can be lifted out.

Will usually dispatch within 10 working days of receiving cleared payment - opens in a new window or tab. Just how useful depends largely on the greenhouse design, but with a little planning most of these often-neglected areas can be made very productive. Keep some clean bins, bags of compost, clean pots or boxes there by all means, but remember that dirty rubbish will harbour pests and diseases and make cleaning the greenhouse a tedious business. Cover the ground with plastic sheeting covered, in turn, with a layer of gravel or coarse sand; alternatively, place the pots on a slatted or mesh stage raised a few centimetres above the ground. The more light that penetrates the better, since a wider range of plants can then be accommodated.
One way of avoiding this is to stand potted plants in plastic trays that have a layer of coarse gravel in the bottom; space the trays apart to let light through.
This means you will have to be more selective in what you put there, but for some plants shade can be an advantage — even vital. Suitable plants include maranta (prayer plant), calathea, ctenanthe, foliage begonias, peperomia, Fittonia argyroneura and Dieffenbachia pieta all have exotically marked and coloured leaves. These include streptocarpus (Cape primrose), sinningia (gloxinia), saintpaulia (African violet), smithiantha (temple bells), achimenes and Rechsteineria leucotricha. In some cases the space can be ‘boxed’ or ‘cased’ with glass or plastic so that temperatures can be elevated quite considerably. Later in the year these warmed beds can be used for starting tubers — like dahlias, begonias, sinningia (gloxinia), canna and the like — into growth and also for seed germination. Most storage organs are best kept in boxes of clean sand or peat, but many roots have to be prevented from drying out completely during winter and you should make sure you have easy access to them for regular inspection.
Popular pot plants like cineraria, calceolaria, primula, polyanthus, cyclamen, coleus and ornamental capsicum can be housed there from the seedling stage to the size when they can be put into their final pots. As well as the initial germination of bedding plants, the trays and boxes can be kept under the staging for a time until the seedlings are well established.
These were screwed on one side first and then the other side w\as added and screwed into place.
One slat was screwed to each end of the frame to give a sturdy platform for construction to continue.
Our superior Western Red Cedar staging combines the natural beauty of cedar giving  a quality finishing touch to your greenhouse.  A lift-out bottom shelf provides flexibility and additional storage space to help you get the most from your greenhouse. To maximise space in your greenhouse this model can be folded and conveniently stored away when not in use. If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag. The wood is not chemically treated or pressure treated as some other cheaper pine or soft woods.The legs are sturdy 850mm 4x 2. Find out more about your rights as a buyer - opens in a new window or tab and exceptions - opens in a new window or tab. This will prevent the plant roots from entering the soil, and also keep soil pests or worms from getting into the drainage holes.
In the Dutch-light type of house, with slightly sloping sides, there is specially good illumination and plants set well back will get almost as much light as plants on the staging top. In a few cases no light at all is wanted, for instance when blanching and forcing vegetables like chicory, rhubarb and endive.


It is possible to buy spores of selected varieties of hardy, half-hardy and tender ferns in separate packets, to get initial stock. Propagators can be sited under the staging where the shade will be an advantage for most forms of seed germination and for establishing cuttings.
Some designs of greenhouse have ground-level vents allowing the under-stage area to be reached from the outside.
For many of these plants the diffused light of the under-stage area is a great advantage and even when you move them to the top of the staging for display the glass will need to be shaded. Take care, however, that the area is not too gloomy or the seedlings may become weak and spindly. As I said I’m not a carpenter,so if there is a better way of constructing this, perhaps someone could tell us.Firstly I cut the 8 legs to 80cm lengths.
The slats have a gap of 22mm, and one of the cross braces was used to place between the slats while screwing into place.
The staging is made out of treated Scandinavian timber and has specially been designed to offer superior strength, high capacity and is maintenance free over a long time. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. The front panels are planed to give a really smooth finish highlighting the natural grain quality of larch.
In the unlikely event that you wish to return your item, please ensure suitable wrapping is used. The under-stage area is particularly useful to these plants when they are being grown on during the summer months. The idea is to protect the seedlings from sunlight rather than to cast them into deep shade. I won't bother with another cheap one, so if anyone knows of any pipe going spare round here, please let me know.

Where there is little light and not enough space to make the area useful for more ordinary plants, you can always grow mushrooms. Most house plants, too, do not demand full light and can be raised from seed or cuttings under the staging for later removal to the house. These do not need light (though there is no need to black out completely) and they are easy to grow in containers filled with special compost that has been spawned by the supplier.
Established house plants can also be given a holiday under the staging from time to time — they will appreciate the humidity. The joints were to be screwed together as things I have nailed together in the past, have pulled apart on occasion.
Alternatively the upper area can be filled with soil to provide a great growing area at a raised hight. I've had the old saw for about 28 years when I bought my first house In terms of time taken I think I could have halved it by using a power screwdriver.
