Additional Information

Exclusive | Cold Frame Gives You a Jump on the Growing Season

  • Shelter seedlings from chilly spring weather
  • Start gardening earlier and grow later in fall
  • Protects plants from insects and animals, too

This convenient cold frame provides a sheltered place to harden off seedlings, and protects plants from unpredictable spring weather for faster growth and an earlier harvest. The cover protects plants from harsh wind and chilly temperatures, as well as insects and other pests. It also prevents indoor-grown seedlings from getting sunburned as they acclimate to the outdoors. Adjustable screened vents promote air circulation and allow excess heat to escape on sunny days. Also handy for extending the growing season later into fall. 4' square x 27-1/2" high; sized so it can also be used over a 4' raised bed.

I use this mainly to put over my raised bed at night to protect from varmints getting into vegis. Planning to use it more, next spring to get an early start on garden. Very sturdy material & frame. Very pleased with it.

Worked like a charm. Protected seedlings from our shifting weather - winds, rains, and cold temps typically characterize ND springs.

    Comments about : Cold Frame, 4' x 4':

    I got this last year and let it languish in the basement until now.

    I regret that, because this cold-frame works perfectly for my 4'x 4' raised beds, of which I have four. I have only one of these cold-frames, though and they're apparently no longer available.

    Bummer.

    Anyhow, I'm using it this year to harden off my tomatoes and peppers. It works pretty well for that.

        Cold Frame doubts

        By Beuford

        from Lake City, Colorado

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about : Cold Frame, 4' x 4':

        I have raised beds that this product fits perfectly.
        The separate zippered ends allow easy access and the separate netting zipper provides flexibility for temperature control.
        I had reservations about spending that much money; now, I plan to purchase either 1 or 3 more for next season.

        Jump Start the Garden

        By Deborah

        from Burlington, VT

        Staff Product Tester

        Pros

        • Great Season-extender
        • Works With Raised Beds

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Early Spring Gardening
          • Late-fall Gardening

          Comments about : Cold Frame, 4' x 4':

          This cold frame is one of many products I test here at Gardener's Supply. I tested the 4x4 Cold Frame last year, starting in late April. I planted seeds in a 4x4 raised bed and secured the cold frame to the top. From the photo you can see that there was still snow on the ground. By mid-June, the cold frame was off and the bed was bursting with life. I love all the different textures and shades of green in such a compact space.

          I planted many early season crops, including Red Cardinal spinach, Wildfire lettuce mix, red Russian kale, Swiss chard and bok choy.

          It's amazing to me that all of this life/sustenance/nutrition thrives in 16 square feet — and it was planted while there was still snow on the ground.
