Exclusive | Cold Frame Protects Plants and Extends the Growing Season

  • Start gardening earlier in spring and grow later into fall
  • Sized to fit our 2' x 8' Elevated Cedar Raised Bed or may be used on the ground
  • Beautiful, rot-resistant cedar base with aluminum and polycarbonate top
  • Watch: Our Vermont Factory
  • How much soil? Use the Soil Calculator to figure out how much you need for this raised bed

Sized to fit neatly atop our 2' x 8' Elevated Cedar Raised Bed, this attractive cold frame may also be used on the ground to start seeds, harden off transplants, and grow greens and other cool-season crops. The narrow footprint makes it ideal for setting up along your driveway or walkway, or install it next to your house. The base is made from rot-resistant cedar with aluminum corners. The top is made with polycarbonate panels that diffuse light so plants don't "cook," and there are adjustable braces to hold panels at various intervals for ventilation.

Intimidated at first

By Lise

from Durham, NC

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Cedar Cold Frame:

I was intimidated by the size of the two boxes when they arrived but I ended up being surprised at how easy it was for me to assemble this cold frame. I did it by myself with a screwdriver and hammer. It's well designed and uses good-quality materials. I made the assembly task a bit harder by adding hardware cloth on the bottom to help deter voles. If pre-cut hardware cloth could be included to line the bottom I'd give this another star :-) I also added landscaping cloth to deter the nearby Bermuda grass from creeping in --time will tell if that was a good idea. If the front edge was deeper you could have taller plants in front. I adjusted by digging down the front edge and now am growing arugula and lettuce along the front.

    Comments about : Cedar Cold Frame:

    I like the length and that it's made of cedar. The top seems durable. Time will tell how it holds up in the sun. Optimally it would be taller in the front.

    Great addition to our vegetable patch

    By Johnny Test

    from Delafield,WI

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about : Cedar Cold Frame:

    This looks like a great way for us to start the tomatoes earlier in the Spring. The lid can be raised just enough to allow air flow to help the seedlings grow strong stems.

    needed in the north east

    By anniebananie

    from upstate NY

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Easily Move Around
    • Large Size

    Cons

    • Position Could Be Latched
    • Would Be Nice If Venting

    Best Uses

    • Direct Sow Seeds
    • Starting Carrotsseedling

    Comments about : Cedar Cold Frame:

    This is ideal for the cold windy springs we have. I start my carrots, lettuce. spinich, parcely and direct sow tomato seeds. My husband made me one and he really couldn't do it cheaper. I plan on ordering another.
    the only improvement would be if the covers could be latched in the open vent position to prevent the wind from blowing them open.

    Nice product

    By Sam

    from Otis, CO

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Easy to assemble
    • pretty well made
    • Right price
    • Very Nice Glazing

    Cons

    • Wind Can Blow Lid Open

    Best Uses

    • Lengthens Fall Growing
    • Starting Plants Early

    Comments about : Cedar Cold Frame:

    I would buy it again.
    Although it is minor shortcoming, the wind could blow the lid open. I was able to easily make a little gadget that prevents that.

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Easy to assemble
    • Works well

    Cons

      Best Uses

        Comments about : Cedar Cold Frame:

        Using to house young tomato and vegetable plants until can be planted outdoors

        Using to start flower seeds

        We are using the uninvent openers and they work well with this unit

        We did build a bottom frame from 2 x 8 so as to raise the coldframe higher to allow for taller plants
