These super new cold frames are ideal to run along the outside of your greenhouse.
Cold frames are ideal for 'hardening off' plants in the spring to avoid them being knocked back (where they just stop growing for a month) by the sudden change from a warm greenhouse to outside.At first put the tender plants in with the lids closed, then after a few days open the lids to one of the two preset opening positions, then when the plants are used to that, slide off the lids completely so that the cold frame is just providing wind shelter.Finally- plant the hardened off plants in your garden.
Of course you can also use a cold frame to bring on salad plants etc in the winter or use them to protect plants form some pests.
Choice of 4' or 6' model (1340mm or 1960mm long) by 640mm
deep and the back height is 530mm.

Well packaged delivery for self assembly. Good visual instructions make the frame relatively simple to build once the fixings have been mastered. I was particularly impressed by the high quality toughened glass and simple glazing strips which made the final assembly very simple and stress free. My only disappointment is the top opening vent system: the central prop supports could be more secure and the vents are hung on a slotted hinge which doesn't allow full opening for easier access and natural watering. Altogether however this is a well made product and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

A very nice cold frame, but beware it's quite difficult to put together.

by Anthony Williamson

Great value products the prices are really competitive and fantastic service on delivery the cold gram arrived next day. One additional comment whoever came up with the idea of stamping the aluminium sections with a part number is a genius! Brilliant!

not the easiest thing to put together but so far very good

by Brian Adams

Simplicity Cold Frame 4ftx2ft comes flat packed in two containers. The frame is quite light the glass is quite heavy. Each frame part is marked with a number and it is well worth checking these off with the list on the back of the assembly instructions. Everything was correct. The assembly instructions are generally quite good, with a few exceptions. The booklet is divided into sections, each section has a list of parts required to complete that section and is very useful. Drawings are generally very good with the exception of Section 2. Section 2 drawings are poor in comparison with the rest, until I realised the method of construction was the same as Section 1. It took me several hours to assemble the cold frame but the end result is very pleasing.
