Upright Cold Frames from £770
Our Upright Cold Frames include the Standard (4′ 7″ tall) and the Grand (6′ tall).
Our Upright Cold Frames are essentially mini greenhouses which would sit comfortably on a patio or terrace. Often used where there is not enough space to accommodate a greenhouse but still the want for fresh summer salads, herbs or vegetables. Whilst the cold frames are most productive in the summer they are by no means dormant in the winter gardening months. In the winter the cold frames can be used to over-winter pot plants and in the spring can be used to raise bedding plants, seeds and cuttings. In the summer gardening in the upright is a breeze – open the hinged lid to provide perfect summer ventilation.
The Standard Upright Cold Frame is an attractive freestanding unit that is often placed against a wall or hedge. The generous height of the Upright Cold Frame, measuring 4′ 7″, allows a greater flexibility for growing than a standard cold frame would allow. This cold frame is provided with two shelves that can be positioned at heights suitable for the plants you choose to grow. Like our greenhouse staging, the shelving in the Upright is made from Western Red Cedar and can be easily removed should you choose to grow taller plants. The Upright Cold Frame has a hinged lid for ventilation in the warmer months of the year.
The Grand Upright Cold Frame has been introduced for those situations where a greenhouse is just too big, but the standard Upright Cold Frame isn’t big enough! Coming without a back as standard (back available for an additional charge), the Grand Upright is designed to sit against a house or a courtyard wall. This cold frame has a single sliding door, making it easy to shelter inside on those rainy days and tend to plants on the three shelves opposite that come as standard. For ventilation, the cold frame comes with two opening lids – the roof split into two – which are independently operated, so one can be opened whilst the other is left closed.
