Excellent Product for Price

This cold frame was relatively easy to assemble, took 1 hour by myself. Tip 1 Download the instructions in advance of the delivery and print Tip 2 Pre drill holes for the screws as you assemble each corner Tip 3 The acrylic has protective film on both sides Tip 4 The acrylic glazing blocks are best positioned as the iinstructions not the advertised picture. Tip 5 if possible assemble in the warm of your house and carry outside.

A useful cold frame in need of some better assembly instructions

The cold frame looks as if it will do the job, though isn't high quality. The assembly would have been easier if it had been pre-drilled. The assembly instructions were poor: . They tell you to attach the ends by putting the screws through the wrong pieces. . It is unclear how the window supports are attached. . There are no instructions for putting the hinges on the lid. It is worth looking carefully at the photograph to see how the final product should look.

Good coldframe

Easy to assemble, good quality overall I am very pleased. Would have been delighted if the product had cost £10 less as I feel this is pricey. If it is still in good condition in plus ten years I may retract this criticism, so we will wait and see.

Excellent size and value

Perfect size and good value for money. Easy to construct and the window supports fix to the inside of the side pieces and can be swung up to hold open the windows. Very pleased with my purchase and it is full already!

Fairly easy assembly, but

It would have been easier to assemble if the holes had been pre-drilled. I still haven't been able to figure out how to attach the window supports. Overall though I'm pleased with the product and the size is right for my purposes.

Alanna Asked:

Is the glass in the Large Cold Frame safe for children?

We Replied:

Dear Alanna Thank you for your question. I contacted the manufacturer regarding your question about the glass in this product and they have confirmed to me that the glass is safe for children as it is made from acrylic rather than real glass.
