Customer Questions & Answers

Is there a trick to getting the metal screws into the frame?

Very difficult to get screws started haven't been able to complete.
Asked by: river
Hi River, Please call the toll free number (877) 627-8476 for further advice. There is no trick to getting the metal screws into the frame, you need to insert them as per the instructions. Thanks! Thanks!

It says that it is 4 ft x 3 ft but the dimensions given dont match that. Which is it. I have a table that measures 36 " x 51" will it fit?

Roof openings and mounting of raised base

Can each panel of the roof be completely opened, all the way up or even flipped over the other half of the roof? The height of this cold frame is not enough for my plants. Can it be mounted on the top edge of a 4 x 3 wood base made with 2 x 12 lumber to raise the overall height by one foot?
Asked by: SnowLeopard44
Hi SnowLeopard44, The top panels can be completely opened (removed). It can be mounted on top of a wooden base in order to raise the overall height. However, this way the bottom of the Cold Frame will not receive the same sunlight exposure the top would. Thanks!

Cold Frame Double 3 ft. 6 in. x 3 ft. 5 in. Mini Garden Greenhouse is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for small cool weather plants in the winter. Test fit and loosely assemble as you go along before tightening any part. An awl is useful in the alignment of the parts as they are assembled together. Also a rubdown with WD40 on a rag eases in assembling the metal hinge parts. My assembly time was 45 minutes. It fits neatly in a 4x4 raised bed and may be anchored with landscape staples or bricks laid along the edge.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from cold frame The cold frame serves its purpose, but it was not easy to put together. It took several hours to assemble it and there were 4 of us working on it :( After we finally got it together, it works well, setting on the ground, and growing the seeds for the spring planting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good deal This coldframe is very lightweight, but sturdy enough, as long as you use care. The plastic is pretty rigid but would break if somthing hard fell on it. The edge pieces are precision aluminum and fit well. The corner pieces are plastic. One of them does not fit real precisely, although it is close enough to work. There are only two door (top) positions--closed, and open about 8". It locks in each posiion to keep wind from blowing the door off. A gust could blow the whole frame over, but there are holes at the bottom to anchor it down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First Greenhouse I read the previous reviews and expected the plastic pieces to be a bit thin, which they are. It was easy to put together. The instructions come with great photos and the parts are all labeled. The first instruction was to check to make sure you have all the parts--do this. I was missing a couple of peices and did not realize it until I was nearly finished putting it together. This was quite disappointing, but customer service was great and they had the missing parts to me in less than a week. My plants are doing well and I look forward to eating veggies earlier this year and later into the fall. A good starter greenhouse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased with greenhouse. The greenhouse arrived promptly with all the parts present. Assembly is straightforward, but it takes a couple hours. I recommend a power screwdriver. The aluminum framing is strong and the finished house is quite sturdy. I am happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was a present for someone else My ratings are from feedback from the recipient of the item. The only negative reported was that it took much longer to assemble than anticipated; but, assembly was speeded up substantially when an electric screwdriver was introduced to the process - lots of little pieces to be assembled. A big plus, a comment: the glazing material (polycarbonate?) appears indestructible; and, the whole structure is very rigid/sturdy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Greenhouse Kit Home Depot's online and delivery service was excellent. I received it right away. It was easy to assemble, but I feel it is a little flimsy. The covers are really not secured. If you lift them up too high, they will come unhitched. I feel for the price, it is a good starter cold frame to see if you want to go for the more expensive products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent cold frame Don't expect in this item to provide yourself with a warming green house. It is simply a plastic cold frame. But, it does a nice job protecting your seedlings during the early season with winds and cool nights. Utilized in a raised bed, I am able to place plastic, water-filled jugs around the inside perimeter of the cold frame to absorb the suns heat during the days in spring, then close the unit off at night trapping some radiant heat to protect from cooler temps at night. This allows me a more slow hardening off process. Again, it is plastic, and will not withstand high winds on its' own, but inside my boxes, or in an area around your house away from such weather, it is a nice transfer and starter when used for its' purpose.
