Vegtrug Cold Frame 1.8 m


In a nutshell....

The Vegtrug Cold frame is an easy to assemble timber frame with safety shatter proof polycarbonate for heat retention over winter. This one is to fit the 1.8 metre long vegtrug, also available in 1 metre width on this site. Cold Frame Only included.


This product is currently out of stock

NOTE: This product is the Cold Frame only. The Vegtrug is bought separately.

Vegtrug Cold frames are flat pack frames made from treated timber and safety shatter proof polycarbonate panels, they are easy to assemble and come with full assembly instructions. The frames offer much greater heat retention over winter and also enable you to start growing earlier in the year by warming up the soil much faster. The frame opens up fully and has a ventilation post for easy access. Vegtrug cold frames do not need to be used strictly with Vegtrug planters, as they work just as well directly on the ground.

Size: Medium Cold Frame will fit a 1.8 metre vegtrug planter

3.5mm polycarbonate for maximum insulation
N.B.: These will not fit a Wallhugger Vegtrug.

Measurements: 180cm long x 76cm wide x 60cm high

Found it very easy to put together. Happy with how solid it is. And a good size.

assembly instructions are not good. It doesn't specify which way up to put the panels and also it doesn't point out that the side panels have pre drilled holes for the arms which must be on the outside. It looks so easy compared to most flat packs but it's easy to get it wrong. Thanks to Dermot it's now done and it fits perfectly. Think I'd like to fix it to the Veg trug just in case Storm Ophelia has any brothers or sisters.

Does the cold frame have a base to it so you can put potted plants in it?
Answered by Niall

No Helen. It is for going on top of a Vegtrug. However i have had a number of customers use them sitting on the ground very successfully Niall Quickcrop

Hi Folks Got my veg trug and cold frame. There are no clamps in the box to secure the frame to the trug. Are they not supplied?
Answered by Niall
on August 12th, 2021
Hi Gina There is no need for them. You will see in the instructions and when you build the unit that the Cold frame has extensions on each corner that allow the unit sit down inside the vegtrug snugly. This holds it in place against high winds. You can of course fix an metal plate to the vegtrug and then on to the cold frame but in my opinion this is overkill. I have a 1.8m unit with a cold frame on top in a windy spot and never had any issues Niall Quickcrop

Asked By tracygaughan

Hi, I'm interested in getting your 1.8m veg trug with the main purpose of growing courgettes in it. Two questions please - would I fit 3 courgette plants in there do you think and also if I bought the cold frame cover would that leave enough room for the height and width of the courgettes plants to grow? Many thanks
Answered by Andrew
on April 26th, 2019
Hi Tracy. I think 2 courgette plants would be more realistic and even at that it will get pretty busy in there when they are going full tilt. The cold frame would be handy for getting them going but they would soon outgrow it. The cold frame is perfect for smaller crops and will be very useful in the Autumn to extend the season or for starting plants off early in the Spring.
Asked By Ruth
on January 16th, 2018
Can this be fitted to an old vegtrug (18 months old) or would even slight warping of that be a problem when fitting this?
Answered by Niall
on January 16th, 2018
Hi Ruth. I fitted one to a Vegtrug i have up about 3 years and it went on fine but i suppose it depends on how warped your unit is.
Asked By Gillian Bristow
on November 23rd, 2017
Very interested in this product as I have one of your veg trugs How does it open up is it hinged at the back?. How is it fixed to the vegtrug?
Answered by Andrew
on November 24th, 2017
Hi Gillian. It is hinged across the top so you can just open it up very easily from both sides. It just sits on top of the Vegtrug and fixes to the sides with a bracket. A really useful addition to their range as it is really sturdy and allows you grow much warmer weather crops like cucumbers, tomatoes etc.
