How Does a Cold Frame Greenhouse Work?
Many gardeners use a cold frame to protect their plants from frost in the winter months and extend the growing season for their vegetables, herbs, and plants. You can build a simple cold frame using our kit that provides ventilation on warm days while giving your delicate plants the protection they need to thrive during fall and winter.
Our cold frame is built to control the ambient temperature to look after the plants inside a cold frame, no matter what gardening season it is. With the right protection, your plants will get enough light on warm days without overheating, and won't freeze over the colder months -- it also means that you can grow certain plants out of season with the micro-climate the cold frame creates.
Our kit contains everything you need to put your cold frame up, apart from the raised bed you will need to attach it to.
Why You’ll Love The Cold Frame For Your Raised Bed
Our expandable cold frame is the perfect addition to your garden to help protect tender plants from frost. Whether you want to lock in as much warmth as possible throughout the winter or let in light on the warmer days to keep your plants alive at the end of season, a cold frame gives you much more control.
Regulating the temperature inside, our three feet high cold frames protect your delicate plants and create a secure structure around plants that you can easily open and close depending on the weather.
You can use cold frames to extend your gardening season and grow a variety of plants that normally wouldn't survive in harsher weather conditions, turning your gardening hobby from a warm weather affair, to something you can successfully achieve all year round.
The cold frame greenhouse is the perfect partner for our raised garden beds, no matter which size you’re going for:
- 4 x 4 Raised Garden Bed
- 4 x 8 Raised Garden Bed
- 4 x 12 Raised Garden Bed
- And lots more of our raised garden beds, corner garden beds, curved garden beds, and terraced garden beds
Micro-climates allow you to grow plants that are outside of your growing zone or season. A combination of a cold frame, an insulated raised bed, and a protected location may allow you to create a climate many degrees higher than the outside temperature. Try growing plants that don’t typically thrive in your area. Protect plants that don’t generally over-winter well by placing them in the cold frame until spring. Experiment and save money by growing your vegetables and saving plants that would typically have to be replaced.
Here’s a note from Anthony on why he designed this product:
"I love how our cold-frame greenhouse attaches directly onto my raised bed and enables me to start my plants earlier in the spring. On the opposite side of the season, I’m able to grow well into the fall and during mild New York winters even grow cool season crops like lettuce and spinach!” - Anthony
