Exclusive | Cold Frame Extends the Growing Season

  • Start gardening earlier and extend the harvest in fall
  • Woven poly insulating cover has vents and insect netting
  • Shade cover protects plants from intense sun
  • Ultimate Cold Frame includes frame and woven poly cover; frame and shade cover also sold individually

For avid vegetable gardeners, winter lasts too long and fall frosts come too early. These new cold frame components let you stretch your growing season and harvest more healthy, home-grown produce. Designed to fit over our 71-1/2" L x 57-1/4" W Cedar Raised Bed with 27 square feet of growing space, the 3-season covers are supported by a sturdy 36-1/2" high enameled steel frame that fits right into the raised bed corners. In spring and fall, use the frame with the insulating greenhouse cover. Made of woven polyethylene, it has a large access door on each side and two roll-up gable vents, all with 2-way zippers. Insect netting covers the doors and vents, and zips open for accessibility.

During warm weather, replace the greenhouse cover with the optional woven polypropylene Shade Cover, sold separately. It protects plants from the stress of excess sun and heat and attaches securely to the frame with hook and loop tabs. We also offer the Frame and Shade Cover individually for warm climate gardens.

  • Enameled steel frame
  • Imported woven polyethylene fabric
  • 71-1/2" L x 57-1/4" W x 36" H

    Comments about Cold Frame Covers and Frame:

    I thought this was a great improvement to my starting plants inside and having trouble moving them out to harden them off in minnesota. Winds in spring and a cold day here and there, are hard to spend all day at work and still have plants hardening off in the yard. This cold frame is great for protecting the plants from sudden changes in weather. It only had a couple rivits missing by end of spring. Rivits are where the ground stakes go and keep the fabric from ripping.
    I am looking forward to using it again and again. My plants grew huge.

      Comments about Cold Frame Covers and Frame:

      This purchase was to replace the identical product I bought more years ago than I can remember. It finally just wore out. The box looked like it was drop kicked when it arrived, but the only things missing were the stakes to achor it to the ground. These were quickly replaced by customer service. I am looking forward to using my cold frame next spring.

        I started growing vegetables such as carrots, lettuce, spinach, and beets early this spring. Was eating fresh homegrown salads before most people. The real test came when we had straight line winds recently, the cover stayed on!

          Comments about Cold Frame Covers and Frame:

          We bought two of the cold frames and placed them on top of our garden boxes, perfect fit, easy to assemble. We are very pleased with the quality of materials and ease of assembly. My husband secured the bottom strips to our boxes with a removable board and screwed them down. This really was necessary due to the sudden winds we often receive in Eastern Oregon.
          I planted our early Spring veggies and they are thriving in our cold frames. We were actually surprised what a difference the cold frames made. We are also looking forward to using them to extend our garden into fall.

                The cover didn't fit the frame and the frame didn't fit the raised bedframe. After the first season, the plastic connectors broke.

                    I have used this cold frame for years and love it. I can get a real jump on the season with tomatoes, peppers, squashes, and even lettuce. I recently called customer service to inquire about purchasing a new cover only, since mine was finally falling apart. "That shouldn't happen" is the response I got, and they promptly sent me a new cover at no charge. I will certainly check Gardener's Supply catalog first when I am looking for garden equipment in the future.

                    I have used this "greenhouse" for a number of years and the plastic is now disintegrating. I have just purchased my 2nd one -- at nearly twice the price. The computer-generated directions are hardly readable and the edges of the framing tubes are not well finished and fit poorly. I am disappointed but it is still worth the head start on the season that the greenhouse provides. I wish I could purchase the plastic cover separately.

                        without instructions in the box, we had to figure frame construction out from the picture on website. Tent is nice.
