From a new member, At home I sit down and pot up, I also have all my plants on benches, so I don't need to bend over and lift them for weeding. I don't use a garden scoot, or seat. I have my soil, low in a 30gal. container so I can reach it easly. I don't want to bend over because of a touchy back. I sit on a large metal pot turned upside down. I put my full flat to be worked on, on top of a 5 gal. pot turned up, and I have another on the other side of me to put a fresh flat the newly potted plants in after they are potted. When I weed I sit on the ground so I don't need to bend over as far, if I were seated I would need to bend over more to reach the ground.
I also grow very small plants that are in no larger than a 6" pot, so I can lift it. I keep my soil very light, and put it in the 30gal. pot, bucket by bucket, not all at the same time, and I'm not to proud to ask the kids on the block to lift soil bags out of the car and into my soil pot in the back garden.
