The perfect solution to starting crops off earlier in the year for earlier harvest, and for getting greenhouse-raised seeds conditioned for growing outdoors.
- Protects young plants and seedlings from spring frosts
- Provides a protected environment for strawberries
- Protects half-hardy bedding over winter
- Lid opens partially or fully for aeration and easy access
The VegTrug Cold Frame has been designed with a strong wooden frame and 6mm (1/3in) double insulation polycarbonate to convert a standard VegTrug into a raised cold frame, which is great for protecting young plug plants and seedlings from late spring frosts.
Grow lettuces and strawberries under the cold frame to provide a beneficial protected environment. The cold frame will increase the rate of growth as a result of warmer temperatures inside, without it becoming too stifling.
Use the cold frame to protect plants over the winter months too. The cold frame is ideal for wintering crops as well as half-hardy bedding like zonal geraniums which will appreciate the dry. Partially-open the lid to allow for aeration or open fully for easy access to the plants during watering.
Please note: Cold Frame and VegTrug are sold separately. This Cold Frame will only fit the Small Wooden Patio Planter
