I found it of sturdy construction and it will probably out live me.
Relatively straightforward to construct, pleased with the perspex glazing, however, decided to use 20mm wood screws to secure the glazing blocks rather than the nails provided. Having researched various online alternatives I am happy with choice made.
Just what i wanted for over wintering plants,arrived quickly, well done many thanks.
Fine product but was very dissapointed with the long delay in receiving after my order
Cold frame comes flat packed. Relatively easy to construct but could do with some corner reinforcements to stop the whole frame from twisting. The lid Perspex needs 6 attachments per lid, not 4 as supplied. Following the instructions and fitting the 4 attachments doesn't stop the Perspex from sliding sideways. Recommend 2 on each long side and 1 on each short side - an extra 4 attachments per cold frame is a very cheap way to improve the overall product. I have fitted my own opening catches as only 1 wooden strut was enclosed in the pack. Plus I wasn't keen on the way the strut was to be positioned, likely to warp the lids. However, these are very minor niggles, this is a very nice cold frame, spacious, looks good and I recommend it.
Well packaged, easily constructed and looks good. What more could I ask?
Cold is no longer a problem
Great looking cold frame and good value. I am very pleased with it and will be ordering another. Only criticism would be that it would have been easier to put together with pre-drilled holes and the support struts for the lid are better put at the side rather than, as instructed, across the front.
My wife is very pleased with it
Very pleased with our purchase.I(at 76) had no problems putting it together despite it specifying a 2 man operation. We look forward to it's use in the forthcoming months.
Very easy to build up now looking forward to bringing on my plants faster
I spent a great deal of time trying to find a coldframe that was both value for money and would fit into the space that I have, couldn't believe some of the prices. Opted for this one, and I was pleasantly surprised.
The consignment was early, even though my account said it hadn't been dispatched?! thankfully my neighbour accepted.
The coldframe itself was very easy to assemble, although there are no pre-drilled holes, all in all (with a tea break) took 1.5 hours.
I would definite buy another, knowing that I have space for one.
would I recommend? definitely.
This is my first coldframe and so I have nothing to compare it against. It was delivered quickly and we set about building as soon as it arrived. The side and back panels are stapled and some of them missed the planks so were sticking out but not a real problem. The instructions were simple to follow and it took us about half an hour to set up. Really pleased with it so far although not sure how robust it will be in the long run.
