The summer season is the perfect time to experiment with a wide variety of different plants. If you lack space in your garden for a greenhouse, then a cold frame is the perfect solution. Gabriel Ash offers a selection of cold frames that are designed to suit all types of gardens.
A cold frame is the perfect addition to any garden and provides a wide range of benefits, including:
• Extra protection for your plants. Cold frames are designed to keep your plants well protected and will provide young plants with shelter.
• Adjustable lid. Cold frames come with an adjustable lid, which you can easily lift and keep open during summer to provide your plants with plenty of protection.
• Suitable for a wide range of plants. Adding a cold frame to your garden enables you to fully enjoy your gardening hobby whenever you wish and gives you the chance to experiment with plants that you would not normally be able to grow in your area.
• Attractive structure for your garden. Gabriel Ash’s cold frames are constructed with Red Cedar and toughened safety glass, providing you with a longer lasting, attractive structure that will protect your plants and compliment you garden perfectly.
Cold frames are suitable for a wide variety of plants. You can not only consider growing a selection of bright, attractive plants for the summer, but also grow a variety of fruit and vegetables. Marigolds are a particularly good choice of summer plant for growing in your cold frame.
Fruit and vegetables that can be grown in a cold frame this season include melons, cucumbers, peppers and tomatoes. You can add flavour to your home-cooked dishes by growing a selection of herbs in your cold frame.
To keep your plants well protected during summer, you will need to make sure that your cold frame is positioned in a suitable area within your garden. Keep your cold frame in a location where there is plenty of sunlight and make sure that it is well ventilated to reduce the risk of problems such as plant diseases. Keep the lid propped open during the day and closed at night if the temperature drops.
Make sure that your plants do not become damaged as a result of too much sunlight. Provide them with shelter by placing shade covers on your cold frame. Cold frames trap moisture, so you will also need to make sure that you do not provide your plants with too much water.
Adding a cold frame to your garden will enable you to fully enjoy your gardening hobby and experiment with a wide variety of plants during the summer. Cedar cold frames are a great choice for those in need of a longer lasting structure that requires little maintenance.
