A convenient portable potting stand can be made by using a large wheelbarrow with a board across the front. A piece of plywood or boards you may have around the house will work. Potting soil and tools placed in the back of the wheelbarrow will counterweigh the wheelbarrow so it won’t tip over. This potting system is great for larger containers that are heavy. You place the container in the location where you want it and move the potting stand next to it. Such a procedure saves a lot of lifting, making it easier on the back. It also helps with cleanup after the work is done.
