If you want to create the ideal growing environment for your small or young plants, then this spacious aluminium cold frame is a perfect solution. It will neatly blend into your garden, no matter how big or small it is, and its sturdy, weather resistant frame will last for years to come.

Features

- 4 anchor stakes ensure your cold frame is firm and secure
- Hinged lid allows easy access to plants
- Keeps pests (and pets!) away from your plants

Specifications

- Width: 1.08m (3ft 6½in)
- Depth: 56cm (1ft 10in)
- Height: 41cm (1ft 4¼in)
- Weight: 3kg

The cold frame has a sturdy aluminium frame, which is lightweight and weather resistant. It is glazed with 3mm thick high quality polycarbonate panels, which block out 99.9% of the sun's harmful UV rays and further promote the healthy development of plants. The PC panels help retain heat longer than glass and are strong and shatterproof, which makes them an ideal choice if you have children or pets that often play in the garden.

The hinged lid allows an easy access to your plants and seedlings, and allows you to keep your plants well ventilated. It features two lid props, which allows you to leave it propped open on hot days.

Nice product, fairly easy to assemble, it could be improved by adding triangular shaped strengtheners to the corners of the base, a) to keep it 'square' and b)to provide somewhere to weigh it down, it is VERY light weight and the pegs supplied are only of use on earth,mine is on a paved patio so nowhere to push the pegs into.

Good value for money and easy to assemble if you follow instructions well. Very lightweight and with the recent high winds it will definitely need securing to the ground with the provided pegs. Just the right size we needed. Satisfied with the purchase. Prompt delivery.

The kit came on time & complete. Nothing missing & for this I've awarded the star. It took us hours to work out from the few diagrams how the frame went together because we thought the bolts should go through the plastic in order to hold it in place. Luckily I have small strong hands to get into the minute space given for screwing the aluminium together. (Watch the edges some are sharp).
Put the plastic in as per instructions & you can't get the nuts on. Bolt the frame first as we eventually did & the plastic sides pop out again. Despite hours of hassle my cold frame was put together. Next problem - the props to hold the lid open don't fit just balance on the frame edge & lid. Fine in calm weather only.

The said frame pinned into the ground is now coming apart. DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT!

This cold frame is aluminium and thin twin-wall polycarbonate. A bit fiddly to put together but not too bad unless you have trouble holding small nuts and bolts. A bit of patience is needed as you need to slot the polycarbonate panels into the groove in the aluminium as you make the frame up. It does help that the square nuts sit in the frame and don't turn as you screw the bolt in. It also helped to put slight pressure on the polycarbonate by the nut to prevent it slipping down the frame but this was me being cautious. This took me about 30 minutes with only one hiccup which was my fault for not reading the instructions properly. Overall, a welcome buy for our garden. I'll just have to make sure our cat doesn't sit on it as the plastic lid wouldn't take her weight I would think.

Flimsy, poor quality product. Took 3 hours to put together, and then we were so disappointed we put it in the bin. Where the term "deluxe" comes from goodness only knows. Avoid purchasing this product.

Fairly easy to assemble, but lightweight and I doubt that in a wind the hooks would hold it down, so have dug it down slightly to stabilise it. The main difficulty is that the polycarbonate panels of the lid do not slot into the channels properly and there is actually no flange at all on one of the long lengths, so the panels immediately pop out. Will try to screw them in, but not very satisfactory

the cold frame works well, bit complicated to put together. Rather on the flimsy side,lid does not lift right up.
