This clever cold frame provides dual protection! Use the polycarbonate top panel to protect plants from chilly temperatures and wind, so you can plants out weeks earlier and to harden off transplants. Once the weather warms up, slide out the polycarbonate top panel, leaving the screen to foil most insects, slugs and wildlife. The screen allows good air circulation and protects plants from hard rain and hail. And you can water right through the screen. In fall, slide the polycarbonate top panel back in to protect plants from early frosts, extending the growing season. The 4mm thick, twin-wall polycarbonate includes a 5-year guarantee against UV damage. Includes ground anchors.

I am now using it as a "critter" barrier. So far it hasn't been cold enough to actually use it to extend my growing season.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I liked this product a lot.
from Pasadena, CA
My only concern is that the lid sits somewhat awkwardly on top of the box, and it would be preferable if it operated with a hinge rather than my having to lift it off each time that I want to access the inside of the box. Otherwise, I like this product.

Very Happy with purchase
By Husky Hiker
from Harrisburg PA
We wanted cold frames that were attractive enough to place in our flower bed under our breakfast nook that would also be very functional. These are great. Love the screened top. We placed them on treated lumber and filled with a base layer of rock over landscape fabric to help keep little diggers out. Primarily they will be used to start seeds and to extend some plants.Putting them together was a little tricky. Once we figured out the first one, the second went together in just minutes. Was missing 2 parts and after sending mfg a quick email we had those in days.

Poor Assembly Instructions
from Trenton, New Jersey
I recently purchased this cold frame. My comments are based on assembly only as I have not had a chance to actually use it. Assembly was much more difficult than it should have been because the instructions were not detailed and were mostly just pictures. It would have been helpful to label the parts to correspond to the pictures. The numbers on the parts did not match the numbers on the parts list. I found out through trial and error that the holes on the panels are offset. This resulted in an several errors. I hope that the manufacturer will make revisions.
