More than just a standard coldframe, the Grand Upright Coldframe has been introduced for all those situations where a greenhouse is just too big, and our standard Upright Coldframe isn't big enough! Coming without a back as standard (a back is available for the coldframe for an additional charge), the Grand Upright is designed to sit against a house or a courtyard wall. The coldframe has a single sliding door, making it easy to shelter inside on those rainy days and tend all the plants on the 3 shelves to the opposite side that come as standard within the above costs. For ventilation, the coldframe comes with 2 opening lids - the roof split into 2 - which are independently operated, so 1 can be opened whilst the other is left closed. As with all our structures, the coldframe is made entirely from Western Red Cedar, with fixings of stainless steel and brass as standard, and powder coated aluminium for the door runners and sills. The Grand Upright comes neatly boxed and in sections for easy self assembly. Please note that deliveries of our Coldframes is only to ground floor level.
The Upright Coldframe is an attractive free standing unit that is often placed against a wall or hedge. The generous height of the upright cold frame, measuring 4' 7", allows a greater flexibility for growing than a standard cold frame would allow. This cold frame is provided with two shelves that can be positioned at heights suitable for the plants you choose to grow. Like our greenhouse staging, the shelving in the upright is made from western red cedar and can be easily removed should you choose to grow taller plants. The upright cold frame is essentially a mini greenhouse which would sit comfortably on a patio or terrace. Often used where there is not enough space to accommodate a greenhouse but still the want for fresh summer salads, herbs or vegetables.
The upright cold frame has a hinged lid for ventilation in the warmer months of the year. Whilst the cold frames are most productive in the summer they are by no means dormant in the winter gardening months. In the winter the cold frames can be used to over-winter pot plants and in the spring can be used to raise bedding plants, seeds and cuttings. In the summer gardening in the upright is a breeze - open the hinged lid to provide perfect summer ventilation. The Upright Coldframe frame is delivered neatly boxed and in sections for easy self assembly. Please note that deliveries of our Coldframes is only to ground floor level.
