Needs a bit of modification

Comments about : Cold Frame For VegTrug™:

We put the cold frame together and placed in on our trug but we needed a few upgrades: First, the large panels were slightly warped so after assembly we made a trip to the hardware store to purchase 8 hook & eye sets and installed them on the lower corners of each large plastic panel. Then, seeing that we still did not have a good seal we installed 1 inch weather stripping on 3 sides of the panels. Then, we had to re-drill and reset one of the receptors on one of the arm supports as it was installed on the wrong side of the panel. Finally, as a last improvement we used long wood screws to secure the cold frame to the trug for winter winds. Also, one plastic panel is bubbled, a bit unsightly but it does not affect usage. The frame is now working beautifully, holding herbs and lavender plants wintering over for spring planting. In the next couple of weeks, we plan to install a light bulb for greater warmth during the coldest winter months. So... I like it, it works, but it could use a few improvements. .

  • Straightforward Assembly

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Extending the Growing Season
    • Insect Control

    Comments about : Cold Frame For VegTrug™:

    I bought this because I wanted to help keep bugs out and extend the growing season a bit. It is a bit pricey but I felt it was worth the cost as it does look very nice on the VegTrug.
    Assembly was not that difficult but did take around 60-90 minutes. Instructions were pretty clear and easy to follow. Holes lined up fairly well so screws and such went in easily. The fit was pretty good on top of the VegTrug and it is fairly solid as well. The lids slide fairly easily.
    Overall I really am happy with this purchase as the cover will definitely extend the growing season and it really looks nice witht he VegTrug.
    I have been using this for about a year and the issues are really minor. The cover lids do tend to slide down a bit if you leave them in the raised position as they are held in the up position by a screw type knob that can slip. It would be nice to have a small handle on the outside of the cover lids but that would be easy enough to add on your own. Also you need to be careful what you put in the VegTrug when you have these attached; I had tomatoes and once they were full height the cover lids would not close. Might be nice to have an optional higher option cold frame cover offered by Gardener's Supply for such situations.

    I really like this product. The only thing that would make it better is to have some predrilled holes for watering system. Nothing against the product, just a suggestion for improvement.

    The cover doesn't line up with the trug, smaller. And will need to figure out how to fasten down. We have wind

    Great investment !

    Comments about : Cold Frame For VegTrug™:

    This is awesome! I love the optional insect and plastic cover canapies to keep bugs and birds and insects out! Was thrilled to see an optional coldframe offered and jumped on buying it so I can start my seeds early.

    For those who lack common sense - the entry clearly reads 'cold frame' under 'accessories'. Please don't put faith in ignorant reviews.

    Ripoff & misleading false advertising!

    By Disappointed Gardener

    from Cape Cod, MA

    Comments about : Cold Frame For VegTrug™:

    Disgusted with this company stealing from consumers through false advertising. In the catalog this item is advertised as a complete unit but you are only getting the top, it does not say anywhere bottom sold separately. If you want the stand it goes on, you have to pay another couple hundred dollars. Also one panel for the top is warped because it looks as if they hurriedly tried to force it together. Seriously thinking of reporting them to Consumer Better Business Bureau for deceptive advertising!
