    We received our cold frame very promptly, it went together very well it is very sturdy, my husband added a couple of handles on each opener just to make it easier for me to open and close. Overall very pleased with it and would recommend to friends and family

    Tuesday 19th April 2022 Verified Purchase

    Perfect for my garden and exactly what I was looking for. I have deducted one star because there is a small crack in the Perspex where one of the “handles” for lifting the lid is screwed into the frame but not worth sending it back for a replacement.

  • 5 out of 5   , Staplehurst.

    Monday 29th March 2021 Verified Purchase

    I ordered this Zest large wooden coldframe. Really pleased with it. It comes flat packed. You will need a drill and screwdriver to assemble it. It took two of us to assemble it as it needed someone to hold the sides in place. It went together very easily. It is quite heavy so may need two people to move it once assembled. It looks and feels very substantial, so I am hopeful of years of use to come. Would highly recommend.

    As detailed in the product description, it is easy to assemble with the directions provided all that is required is a drill and screwdriver. When assembled in my case it holds a wide selection of both large and small plant pots and propagators of various sizes. An excellent product and definitely value for money.

  • 5 out of 5   , Kings Lynn.

    Thursday 03rd December 2020 Verified Purchase

    Very good quality and I managed to put it together single-handed. My only complaint is that I can't screw in the struts that are supposed to keep the lid open - they are square timbers and too awkward for me, but if you are more of a DIY person you should have no trouble at all. It all came well packaged with clear instructions, and delivery times were good.

    Thursday 29th October 2020 Verified Purchase

    Took two to assemble just because it was easier to hold the panels. Used drill for pilot holes and that made it much easier. My daughter and I assembled it in under 30 minutes start to finish. Really pleased with it. Haven’t had any windy or particularly bad weather yet so yet to see how it fares. So far so good.

    Excellent product, solid and good looking at a reasonable price... Wish I'd bought it years ago! My son put it together in just over half an hour, and I've used it ever since.

  • 5 out of 5   , Leicestershire.

    Wednesday 28th October 2020 Verified Purchase

    Well priced. Once built it is a nice large cold frame. Construction is fairly easy, although would have been helped by predrilled holes (I suspect this is the same for other manufacturers cold frames). One Garden (and Zest) are to be praised for their customer service. Zest had missed out packing the bars to hold up the cold frame windows. I contacted One Garden, who contacted zest about the missing parts. They were delivered well within a week.

  • 4 out of 5   , Maidstone .

    Tuesday 27th October 2020 Verified Purchase

    Good product. Could do with being taller but we got round this by placing it on runs of bricks. Only other observation is that the lid could be improved with beading all round the acrylic to make the closure on the lid more secure.

  • 4 out of 5   , Warwickshire.

    Saturday 24th October 2020 Verified Purchase

    Arrived promptly and well packaged. Easy to assemble and a fairly sturdy Cold frame which is in good use. Would use this company again. Only four stars as there was no dispatch communication. A warning of it’s arrival would have been helpful as it was a large heavy item.

  • 5 out of 5   , Powys .

    Good product. Easy to assemble. Painted it first to match garden woodwork. All items in good order apart from one Perspex sheet which was a bit jagged down one side but not so bad as to affect functionality and be worth asking for a replacement. Prompt delivery. Plants thriving.

  • 4 out of 5   , London.

    Wednesday 29th July 2020 Verified Purchase

    The cold frame was very easy to put together and is a good size to grow veg over winter and to start of summer crops. There isn't a latch on the lid so you may need to place a brick on to on top in high winds. The best part about my order was definitely the service from One Garden - easy to get hold of even during lockdown. Thank you very much to the One Garden team.

    Friday 06th March 2020 Verified Purchase

    VERY pleased with this large cold frame, so far, although we’re currently at ‘completed’ stage, with nothing yet transferred to it (frosty, early March). With a cordless drill/driver, it’s very easy for one person to construct; and now that it’s been transformed with fence/timber paint, it looks very classy – like teak! Adding a couple of black cast iron handles, plus a turn catch between the lids so we can lift both at once (inexpensively sourced from Amazon), add a great finishing touch. It depends on personal need/expectation, of course – but it’s a substantial size and length (‘might even buy another!), and well-made for the price. A good find!

    Monday 10th February 2020 Verified Purchase

    The cold frame arrived in good time unfortunately the perspex sheets were damaged, but soon replaced. The item is good quality but I feel that pilot holes are required for the assembly and the pegs that hold the perspex sheets in need to be re thought, they are on the outside of the frame which looks poor so I glued mine in.

    This cold frame was half the price of similar items on the web, but I was pleased on arrival, sturdy and rot-proofed, it is excellent value. I decided to use stronger woodscrews and improve the glazing security strips but yes a GOOD BUY.

  • 5 out of 5   , Wiltshire.

    Tuesday 09th October 2018 Verified Purchase

    This is a sturdy, large cold frame with clear polycarbonate lids. You need a few diy skills to put it together as it comes flat packed, but if you can use a screwdriver there shouldn’t be a problem. I think the timber is treated but I painted mine a smart shade of green and it’s going to get a lot of use over winter. A good buy for the money.

  • 2 out of 5   , Bristol.

    Friday 05th October 2018 Verified Purchase

    Although I am happy with the end result, assembling this product requires skill and appropriate tools. It was necessary to pre-drill the holes for some of the screws and the wood is quite rough cut although adequate for its intended purpose. It does need to be protected if it’s going to last. Probably okay for the price.

    We are very pleased with our new cold frame. It comes neatly flat-packed and it assembles quickly and easily. It is also a very useful size - not large, not small, but very manageable, and ideal for supplementing the smaller garden. We can thoroughly recommend it to others.
