The Zest Large Cold Frame is delivered from central UK stocks held by Zest4Leisure. Depending on product size, one of two established carriers will undertake home delivery.
Typically, a 7.5 ton lorry will deliver. This will reach most locations an average car can. On occasion, a smaller 3.5 ton vehicle may be used for smaller items.
Unloading will take place at the kerb-side or onto your adjacent driveway. Vehicles will not leave the public highway. A driver may be willing to carry the goods into your garden at their own discretion. Goods cannot be carried through your home, therefore if necessary please arrange some extra help privately.
This product benefits from a free delivery service within mainland England, Wales and Southern Scotland. The above postcode checker will confirm this for you.
Delivery will typically be made within the period quoted on this product. For larger products, the carrier will call and book in a convenient delivery date. For smaller products, a delivery date will be provided by email from the carrier, which will include a reference to allow online tracking.
Less frequently serviced locations may be subject to an extended delivery period of up to an additional 7 days. These distant locations include the Scottish Highlands.
Zest4Leisure deliver across mainland Great Britain. Therefore, for this product we are unable to service; Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Channel Islands, Northern Ireland and all of the Scottish Islands.
Due to additional delivery zone fees, certain Scottish Highlands locations (Zone B) can only be serviced at a distant surcharge (at cost). The above post code checker can confirm if a surcharge will apply.
These locations include:
Zone B = Scottish Highlands (AB, IV, KW, FK19-21, PA36, PA38-40, PH17-26, PH30-41) at £14.99
For a limited range of bulky and/or extra-heavy products (gazebos and large furniture sets) to Zone B, the employment of a dedicated carrier at considerable additional cost is necessary. Such products can only therefore be serviced to Zone B locations at a bespoke Zone C rate of at least £149.99*. (*Zone C availability and cost confirmed on order receipt).

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!

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.

Although a bit fiddly to assemble it all fits together very well – ideal size and will make a big difference to our attempts to garden in this windy spot at 1000 ft

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.

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.

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.

Arrived in very good condition. Good solid construction, however no matter how hard we tried one lid would not lay flat so did not close properly to bottom of the frame.
