Raised bed kit with frame and weather-protection cover (SAVE )
The Complete Kit: Great raised bed plus weather-protection cover and supporting frame (SAVE). This great kit comprises:
The kit that converted me to raised beds!
Base: Made from 20mm FSC certified, pressure-treated timber, the kit includes sturdy joining brackets. Despite my morbid fear of flat-pack self-assembly items, this is EASY to make up. It took me about 15 mins with a cordless screwdriver ! Also included are extension joints , should you wish to buy two kits and make a deeper raised bed.
Even more useful if also combined with one of the covers for pest protection (available separately).
Dimensions : L : 1.2m x W: 1m x 15cm depth.
Powder-coated steel frame, fits the above raised bedThe sturdy powder-coated, tubular steel frame clunk-clicks together and slots in to the ready-made apertures in the raised bed. I leave the frame in place all year round, and then use different raised bed covers, according to what I need. (See below).
Dimensions : L: 1.2m x W: 1m x H : 50cm
Cover: Just pop the clear polythene cover over the frame to allow the soil to warm up before you sow or plant, or to provide some useful weather protection early or late in the season. Also great for getting more tender crops growing really strongly as they enjoy the extra warmth. End ventilation flaps can be used to regulate temperature and humidity, and the cover is kept securely in place using metal hooks which slot into the base of the raised bed. Great design!
