The Zest Large Cold Frame is delivered from central UK stocks held by Zest 4 Leisure. 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.

Free Delivery

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 Period

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.

Extended Delivery

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.

Offshore Delivery

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.

Distant Surcharge

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, FK19-21, IV, KW, PA36-40, PH17-26 & 30-41) 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).

    A well made, easily assembled cold frame. Just what I needed as an addition to my greenhouse.

    Just what I had been searching for - right size and solid construction. Went together really well and looking good next to the greenhouse. Also arrived ahead of projected delivery date.

    Excellent value. Easy to put together probably would have painted it first

  • 5 out of 5   , Staplehurst.

    Monday 29th March 2021

    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

    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.

    Excellent product for the price - easy to put together and is surviving the recent gales!

  • 5 out of 5   , South Yorkshire .

    Thursday 29th October 2020

    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. Havenít had any windy or particularly bad weather yet so yet to see how it fares. So far so good.

  • 5 out of 5   , Leicestershire.

    Wednesday 28th October 2020

    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.

    Wednesday 28th October 2020

    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.

  • 4 out of 5   , Maidstone .

    Tuesday 27th October 2020

    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

    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 itís arrival would have been helpful as it was a large heavy item.

  • 5 out of 5   , Powys .

    Tuesday 20th October 2020

    The most inexpensive I could find. But am surprised at the quality of the cold frame. Easy to put together and should do their job very well.

    The timber is a bit rough and ready, and I used extra screws in places, but basically OK.

    Wednesday 07th October 2020

    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.

    Good for the price. Easy to put together but would recommend fixing the window props centrally to avoid warp.

  • 5 out of 5   , Boston.

    Wednesday 29th July 2020

    I have found this Cold Frame to be of sound quality and value for money. It was dispatched in a timely manner and the communication for the whole process was very good. I have already made a second Zest purchase, and again I am very happy. Would recommend. Thank you.

  • 4 out of 5   , London.

    Wednesday 29th July 2020

    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.

    Nice looking cold frame when new and very reasonably priced but it is warping already and starting to look dilapidated. I will have to do some renovations and strengthening at the end of the season. Would not recommend to a friend

    Friday 06th March 2020

    VERY pleased with this large cold frame, so far, although weíre currently at Ďcompletedí stage, with nothing yet transferred to it (frosty, early March). With a cordless drill/driver, itís very easy for one person to construct; and now that itís been transformed with fence/timber paint, it looks very classy Ė 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 Ė but itís a substantial size and length (Ďmight even buy another!), and well-made for the price. A good find!

    Monday 10th February 2020

    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.

    Saturday 11th May 2019

    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

    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 shouldnít be a problem. I think the timber is treated but I painted mine a smart shade of green and itís going to get a lot of use over winter. A good buy for the money.

  • 2 out of 5   , Bristol.

    Friday 05th October 2018

    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 itís 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.

    Saturday 08th October 2016

    A reasonably good product but a couple of the nails holding parts together had come apart and needed remedial action, and pre drilled holes would have helped.

  • 5 out of 5   , .

    Monday 18th July 2016

    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.

  • 4 out of 5   , .

    Monday 25th April 2016

    This is a robust and attractive cold frame and very good value for money. On the down side the mechanism for keeping it open is rudimentary - just a wooden stick rather than the usual adjustable metal brackets. Customer service was excellent.
