I have an old outdoor garden bench that I bought from Ikea and I am considering converting into a raised garden bed. We once painted this garden bench many years back.

So my concern here is that there would be a risk of toxicity leaching from the wood into the plants?

    I'm having trouble visualizing a bench you can plant, any chance of a photo? What part of the world are you in, what is the bench made of and what type of paint did you use when you painted it? Are you intending to grow edible plants or ornamental ones? – Bamboo Dec 6 at 10:40
