The Solexx Deluxe Cold Frame Kit is designed to fit over a raised bed. It's so deluxe that it is cold frame meets hoop house. Functions as a dual-purpose gardening tool: cold frame and raised bed cover.Try four-season gardening and benefit from this cold frame all year round
: Seeds can be started early directly in the raised gardening bed. There's no need to find space and windowsills to start seeds inside. Starting seeds directly in the gardening space will prevent transplanting when some seedlings often don't survive.Summer
: Two prop legs come with the cold frame for the summer months. The cold frame material is designed to disperse light, creating indirect light for the garden. Lower leaves of the plant will not be shaded when the cold frame is propped and dispersing light.Fall
: As summer ends, plant a fall crop. Adjust the cold frame to protect against frost, or prop the cold frame on warmer days. Try growing these crops for the fall: spinach, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, and even cucumbers.Winter
: Some climates will be able to grow crops, like kale and lettuces, during the winter months. Another option, because of the height of the cold frame (31 inches), is using the cold frame to winterize a container garden. Potted plants can fit underneath the cold frame. Using a cold frame in the winter, also, protects the soil in your gardening bed. Harsh winter weather can erode the nutrients from the soil. Cover crops can also be grown under the cold frame.Benefits of the Solexx Covering Material
The twin-wall covering is made from 3.5 mm high-density polyethylene, making it durable and flexible. The panels are not clear. But, have a corrugated design to diffuse light, creating indirect light dispersed evenly throughout the cold frame. The Solexx covering allows 70-75 percent of available light to the plants, even on cloudy days. Plants require 40 percent light, but do the best growing in 70-80 percent of available light. The Solexx Deluxe Cold Frame Kit creates the optimal lighting condition for growing plants.
Within the cold frame, there is not any shade created and plants will not sunburn in hot spots. The twin-wall panel will not yellow, mildew, or mold. Strong frame and flexible panels can handle winds and snow. Even a baseball or rocks thrown from a mower will bounce off and not break like glass or polycarbonate panels.
