Greenhouse Benches for Berry Plants

How to arrange your greenhouse benches for the greatest effectiveness

Greenhouse benches are nice to have. Greenhouse benches can be used as plant stands for your berry plants as well as providing a surface for mulching, planting and pruning berry plants and shrubs.

Berry Jerry’s suggestions about greenhouse benches…

Of course, the placement of your greenhouse benches will be somewhat dependent on the layout of your greenhouse. Personally, I prefer to have at least one of my greenhouse benches at the front of the greenhouse, or even outside the greenhouse to use as a workbench for mulching, planting and pruning my berry plants and shrubs.

Inside the greenhouse, I generally place greenhouse benches all on one side of the greenhouse for my small berry plants, like strawberries. On the other side I place my berry shrubs like blueberry bushes, raspberry bushes and blackberry bushes. I don’t generally put my shrubs on greenhouse benches unless they are very small.

There are a variety of different types of greenhouse benches. Free standing aisle benches made of aluminum are my favorite greenhouse benches because they are sturdy and durable, and they are grated which allows water to drain off rather than having it stand on the benches.

Did you know? Strawberries grow much better if the strawberry plants drain well and do not sit in the water that drains off of them.

I like to have some rolling greenhouse benches around for transporting multiple berry plants from place to place. Most of the rolling greenhouse benches are made out of a heavy duty plastic, but sometimes I find some that are metal.

For my workbench, I like to have portable, folding aluminum greenhouse benches that have ventilated tops that allow water to drain through. Since I don’t need the workbench set up all the time, these fold-up portable greenhouse benches are great because I can fold them up and put them out of the way which saves a lot of space in my greenhouse. They are also convenient to have for my indoor container garden because I can sit my berry containers outside on the greenhouse benches to make sure they get plenty of sunlight.
