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.

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Early Cold Hard Vegetable

          We bought the raised bed and the cold frame that matched in size. They were fairly easy to put together and made of beautiful materials. We had some difficulty lining up the two clear covers with the rest of the frame, but managed in the end to make it work.
          Lettuce and peas have just started to sprout despite late winter's cold nights!

            A decent value

            By VegHead

            from Bristol, RI

            Verified Buyer

            Pros

            • Ease of Use
            • Prefabricated
            • Simple construction

            Cons

            • Opening Is A Fixed Size
            • Too Short
            • Wood Bowed

            Best Uses

            • Extending growing season

            Overall a good product, however, if I had had the time, I think I would have been able to build this for the same price or less. There is only one size for the opening, so I purchased automatic vent openers, however thier installation reduces the amount of growing space by about a square foot. Also one of the boards was slightly bowed, but easily was pushed and held back into place with a 1x2.

            I was most pleased with the corner brackets being air tight, but was left wanting with how the top window edge lines up with the back board.

            The window is of good construction and overall the product was easy to build.

            For those who are handy, build your own, for those who want easy set up, this is your item!

            Coldframe

            By ML

            from Ketchikan, Alaska

            Verified Buyer

            Pros

            • Easy to assemble
            • Good Quality Cedar Frame
            • Nice Hinged Clear Tops
            • Suitable Dimensoins

            Cons

            • Expensive

            Best Uses

            • Covering A Raised Bed
            • Deck Location
            • Growing Salad Greens

            I bought the product to save the time and effort of asking my husband to build me a cold frame. I like this cold frame because it fits well on my deck in the area I selected for it and it will allow me to grow salad greens right next to my kitchen. I think I will also get one for one of my raised beds, as well, as it will fit nicely on the raised bed I have in mind for a cold frame.
