Extend the growing season or get a head start on seed-sowing with this protected plant bed. It is used to provide shelter for tender plants during the winter or to start cold-tolerant plants earlier than if you were to direct-plant them in open soil. In the winter, snow slides off the deeply slanted lid, making this frame well-suited for colder climates. Crafted of untreated western red cedar that is naturally resistant to rot and insects. Plexiglas lid allows sunlight to enter and is slanted to prevent snow, water and detritus from accumulating. Hinged lid swings open to provide easy access to plants or to control the temperature. Allows you to provide optimum growing conditions for longer periods of time. Arrives assembled and ready to use. 30" x 20" x 15" high; 16 lb. Hand made in USA.
