Cold Frames - Very Hot Ideas Jan. 28 2011
By Goat.Meister - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the booklet you want to have if you need and want information about cold frames. I literally took mine apart - cut it into individual pages and put them in plastic sheets and made a notebook with the them. The book is so well written I have used and re-used the information in it over and over again and shown my friends and co-gardeners the material many times. You will not go wrong following the guidelines in this booklet.

1# cold frame information July 28 2012
By Muddy - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Small book but LOTS of information on building a cold frame. I am very happy with this book. I live in New England and winters are long and harsh. Having a cold frame allows me to gain a few extra weeks and to get an early start on my spring seedlings. This books provides a list of vegetables that will do well in your cold frame. My cold frames total cost was about $100. I would love to have a green house but for now my cold frame will have to do.
