    Disappointed

    By Pat

    from Cape Cod, MA

    Verified Reviewer

    Comments about : Protection Frame & Covers, 2' x 8':

    I am on Cape Cod. I placed the frame on my raised bed. I staked it down with the enclosed stakes. I added the "greenhouse" cover. The whole thing blew off the first night. I tied it down with bungee cords and it blew off again. If anyone has any other ideas I would love to get suggestions. I have to leave now for a few weeks, but will try again when I get back. I imagine that the frame and covers could be of good use to someone who lives where there is no wind. Is there such a place?

    Covers

    By Tpfmom

    from Arizona

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about : Protection Frame & Covers, 2' x 8':

    The set comes with two covers. I live in the desert so I am using only the shade cover, the green one. I am pleased with it. It protects my young plants from the sun.

    It's unfortunate that we cannot buy just one cover. I would give this 5 stars if it did. As it is, I have no use for the white plastic cover and for me, it was an unnecessary expenditure. My suggestion is to offer different packaging, so we can buy just what we need.

    Great product but not good in wind

    By Suzy

    from Oklahoma

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Dual Purpose Covers
    • Easy To Place In Garden
    • Easy To Put Together
    • Looks Nice

    Cons

    • Wind Blows It Off Easily

    Best Uses

    • Extend Growing Season
    • Protection From Insects
    • Protect Plants From Frost

    Comments about : Protection Frame & Covers, 2' x 8':

    I live in Oklahoma where the wind comes sweeping down the plains! I have to remove the whole frame and then bring the covers inside during windy days, which is often during the spring. That's been a bit frustrating. I have the planter on my deck against the house to shield from the wind but it still carries the frame off even with use of the staples to hold it down. I'm going to try bungee cords around it next. Love everything else about it though. My bottom line is actually, I would recommend it if in a wind protected area.

    Perfect for a desert climate

    By Hiller

    from Las Vegas

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Dual Purpose
    • Durable
    • Height

    Cons

    • Assembly

    Best Uses

    • Raised Planters
    • Temperature Dips
    • Wind Protection

    Comments about : Protection Frame & Covers, 2' x 8':

    The Nevada sun is punishing, and, where I live, most edible plants benefit from wind protection as well as shade. Plants don't really grow in the winter here, but by adding the greenhouse cover, I've been able to extend the season and keep my plants from freezing the eight or so times it dips to 32. Plus, it keeps my cats out so I can keep my chives! They could get inside if they really wanted to, but I keep mine zipped unless I'm watering and they don't thank heavens. Finally, it seems to minimize bugs, but I do spray my home brewed organic insecticide as soon as I see a problem.

    I got a raised bed to keep my dogs out of my plants, and this has been the icing on the cake for all of the reasons I've listed. I did gulp at the price--especially since I'd just purchased the 300 dollar cedar planter in the picture--but I've come to see both as worth the investment.

    If you are mostly devoid of spatial skills like I am, be patient during assembly. Thank heavens they marked the parts.

    My First Disappointment from Gardener's Supply

    By Colorado Gardener

    from Centennial, CO

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

      Cons

      • Poor Design

      Best Uses

        Comments about : Protection Frame & Covers, 2' x 8':

        I was really excited to get this product; spring in Colorado provides lots of opportunities for extreme day to night temperature flucuation. Wasn't difficult to put together and each of the covers were a snug fit. The earth staples are too long to go straight into the planter, so I put them at an angle. The first day a slight breeze flipped the frame and cover off so I used pipe clamps to secure the middle supports to the planter. Big mistake - the next day found the frame toppled over with a bent middle support. It really wasn't windy and I was surprised to see the failure - definitely won't hold up to our spring. Thinking that if it were shorter it would be less of a parasail and so will probably take a hacksaw to the poles, so as not to have completely wasted my money.
