Re: Help choosing cold frames?

You always need more room than you think.  You will have to water, so  install
that at the same time.(not in the dead of winter but for quite some time
before and after.)  Also make sure it is sturdy enough for our midwestern snow

Aim for something with automatic cents or fans. Cold frames and greenhouses
heat up something fierce during the day, and even with what looks like
adequate heat sink material end up cooking plants, or keeping them in strong
growth rather than going dormant, then freezing.
