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.

Attractive and functional! Soil temp >80 day after install!
from Bend, Oregon
Latches are too loose-fitting and not sturdy enough. They came undone in a windstorm and doors blew backwards. Fortunately, they weren't torn off the hinges! We will have to modify them to be able to keep them open or shut as needed. One of short leg fittings came bent, which you quickly replaced. However, the damage did not happen in shipping, was very uniform!y bent, so it was packed that way! Nancy Angoli

almost but not quite perfect
from Galena, Illinois
The product pieces are of high quality....putting it together was challenging because the pieces were not sized very accurately. The cold frame tops were slightly bigger than the frame...we had to figure out how to make it workable...I would expect that with something less expensive.
So far it's good. But it's NEW, not been outside long.

It's nice now hope it will be in a year or so.

Intimidated at first
from Durham, NC
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.

Love this cold frame!
from Asheville, NC
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.
