Fairlty easy to out together if you follow the instructions as advised. Pretty soft wood so won't really take too much of a bashing. The doors require a further small piece of wood to keep the doors closed which you will have to screw on yourself as the magnetic catches don't always hold. Better than some of the others sold in garden centres at twice the price so overall would recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by westdale Better than I expected
Having seen some reviews I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and the presence of a bottom shelf which some products do not have. It was easy to fit together. A couple of simple DIY mods (a few pilot holes for the screws and a couple of washers on the roof supports) improved it, and I shall probably add a diagonal brace at the back to keep it square. For overwintering, I shall fasten it to a wall. The shelves come out easily and I intend to try growing tomatoes next summer - then back to being a cold frame for the winter.

This gas been my first purchase from ASDA & will definitely buy from them again.
The cold frame arrived very quickly and in good condition. It was easy to assemble with clear nest ructions & no missing parts!
The tame is perfect for my decking/patio as it sits sits against my south facing wall taking up very little space.
My young plants are very happy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by nohow It is a nice design, but let down by some mistakes
I bought two and have asked the manufacturer to replace one of the spars (G) which was split (no reply yet). The side panels for both had the door markings on the inside face, which does not work. The quality of some of the wood was not great. I had to sand down a couple of the shelves to get them to fit.
Despite all that at the price ASDA sell them they are a bargain and I expect them to do a good job for two or three years. When they are new they also look OK, though I don't expect that to last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Friedo Great cold frame
Having only a small garden, we wanted a small green house or cold frame to store and bring on strawberries. This Spear and Jack cold frame completely filled the bill. It is very good quality for the price and was easy to assemble. Delivery from Asda was impeccable and we heartily recommend this purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by superdv OK for the price
Sadly this was spoiled by the fact that it looked like a return - some of the pieces had obviously been put together previously & also the holes had been drilled on the wrong side of one of the side panels. Also, there was a mark/gouge on one of the panels. This said, the price was amazing & with a competent diy husband, we put the cabinet together in the end & it looks good.
