Rated 4 out of 5 by PaulDC S&J Coldframe 2
Quite a nice product for the price. It went together quite well. I put larger screws in the corner r-einforcers and hence had to drill them out. The top of the unit was a little lopsided, but seems to work well.
The glazing is a double walled polycarbonate material, which is good for a garden with children around. I'm not completely convinced about the tanilising, as it seems just brushed on, I will dismantle at the end of the season and put some wood preserver on.
It's good that the product will dismantle and store flat. The stays that hold the roof open seem to work well, although I've added some M8 washers to make the operation smoother.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AGardenSlaveNEKent Excellent buy
This cold frame was delivered much sooner than arranged, so no complaints there!
The frame is very easilly screwed together.
Light corrugated-looking clearish plastic panels (double skinned?) form all sides and top hatches and light weight wood. The hinged side angled panels were a good idea for making delivery easy I thought.
Will know more when I actually plant out as how the plants grow in comparison will be an interesting test!
Personally I think this is a very good buy **** :-)

Product arrived soonerr than expected because it was delivered with an earlier order. It was easy to assemble and light enough to be portable so can be used in different parts of the garden as required. i would certainly recommend it to my friends and family

Rated 3 out of 5 by MorganMad OK for the Price but needs improvement
Relatively easy to put together but pictures given can be confusing. I still have not figured out what the two small blocks of wood are fot that are shown to be attached to the top opening windowsr. I am not sure if they belong in or outside. Also the lid hinge grips do not tighten fully and lid slips down. It needs some washers or shorter screws to allow it to tighten fully.

Good value for money, same thing much more expensive elsewhere. I am using it to house my cacti collection. Looks like the top is hinged in the picture but it is not and the top can go over the sides to open it up which is better It probably needs a coat of wood preserver before too long to make it last longer
