Coldframes

Coldframes are a great space saving way to protect plants and seedlings; we have advice if you're buying a coldframe, and list coldframes for sale from lots of websites.

If you're looking for original coldframe designs, how people use their coldframes, or just a bit of advice, we have lots of photos and questions from our community.
