A timeless picture with elements familiar to any gardener. Although at one end of the potting shed the clock seems to have stopped early in the twentieth century, this is still a work place not a museum. The ‘shed’ is actually a sizeable stone building, part of a long range outside the walled garden of Floors Castle in the Scottish Borders. A small sign by the potting shed door describes this as the ‘engine room’ of the castle garden, the place where seeds are sown, seedlings are pricked out and young plants are potted on, as they have been for generations.
