Cold frames, as every gardener is aware, are extremely useful for starting plants off early in the spring, and protecting tender plants.

Forest's Large Overlap Cold Frame is a particularly attractive example that does its job beautifully. Your gardening year will start that bit earlier when you sow the first seeds even if frost is still about.

There's two independently opening lids that, as they are glazed with acrylic, let in plenty of light and then can be opened as part of the hardening off process.

The range of plants that you can grow will be sufficiently increased to justify the purchase of this pressure treated cold frame that is guaranteed against rot for 15 years.

  • Two Independently Opening Lids
  • Acrylic Glazing
  • Pressure Treated Timber
  • 15 Year Anti-Rot Guarantee

Good if a little awkward to assemble

Buying from the firm was easy and straightforward delivery as stated. The product was well packed .I found it a bit difficult to assemble and was surprised to find I needed to drill before assembly the instructions could be made clearer .

Not bad - but could be better

I can't criticise the quality of the material used. However, I had to tighten every one of the already fitted screws. The lids I had to rebuild using a glue to firm up the joints. I had to replace some of the 50mm screws with 60mm ones to make sure of a decent hold. I found the one-size opening provided by the prop less than useful. To remedy that I cut them into 3 sections - 200, 120 and 80 mm resp, drilled them 25mm from one end so, with judicial fitting to the frame, I ended up with much more useful openings. From the above you will note that I did not require any assistance in assembling the cold frame. Moving it around is not too difficult either, so finding the right place to place it is not a chore. On a scale of 1 to 10 it's a definite 7.

An essential aid for the gardener.

The cold frame arrived well packaged with the sides, front and back ready made. It needed two of us to assemble it due to its size and weight. The holes must be pilot drilled before screwing! The instructions could have been more detailed but we managed OK, using the picture to help us. We found that putting the props on the front, as instructed, didn't work as they ended up propping up the lids on the plastic, not the frame. It is a sturdy, well designed and well made bit of kit and I would recommend it.
