How to Make a Cold Frame Greenhouse
The cold frame greenhouse will enable you to give seedlings and cuttings a head start on spring growth.

A cold frame functions as a miniature greenhouse to extend the growing season. They create microclimates that provide higher air and soil temperatures while sheltering young plants from wind.
Cold frame greenhouses allow plants to be started earlier in the spring, and to survive longer into the fall and winter. They are commonly used for growing seedlings that are later transplanted into open ground.
