A good solid cold frame at a reasonable price. My but... is because it's not really a typical flatpack construction. Each frame requires the insertion of 44 screws and either a second pair of hands or clamps to hold the frame square while inserting them. I found the screws designed to hold the lid supports completely inadequate and replaced them with bolts, washers and lock nuts. I would say than unless you have a power drill/driver the assembly will be a chore. Having said that I am very pleased with the frames (I bought four) now they are assembled and in place.

good quality cold frame

My cold frame is good quality and value for money against others i had looked at. unfortunately the delivery experience was not good. I had a call to arrange delivery a choice of any 3 days. Tthe delivery didnt arrive on the arranged day so i called halls who were very friendly and apologetic and my cold frame arrived late (7.45pm)the next day.unfortunately no assembly instructions so again i contacted halls who arranged with the supplier to email me the instructions.

Timber Cold Frame

Excellent cold-frame. The body is a good, strong weight much more robust that the light-weight things you see in garden centres. The lids are a slightly lighter weight construction than the body but still more robust than those you see in garden centres. It was easy to construct with all parts provided. I've painted mine and it really looks fabulous. I am very pleased with this product and will recommend it to all my gardening friends!

timber cold frame

The cold frame was easy to assemble and came with all its fixings. The timber frame looks more robust than a plastic style cold frame and as it is pressure treated hopefully will get some years of service from it.It was also helpful that the plastic panes on the 'lids' came pre inserted into their timber surrounds.Overall I thought it was good value for money compared with other timber frames I looked at.
