Cold frame sighting and building.
I have an old solid wood single divan bed frame basically basically a huge rectangle of wood with nothing in the middle. I was thinking of turning it into a raised bed but have so many young plants in the house its getting a bit mad, so thought a cold frame would be a good idea. I have some large sheets of glass I can sit on top.
I would just like some advise on how to get the best from it.
Is insulation required, etc?
Where is best to sight a cold frame?
I have a lot of raised beds at the side of the house but the only space left big enough for a single bed size cold frame at the side of the house does not get a huge amount of sun but it is shady and gets a little afternoon sun and next to the living room wall so possibly some residual warmth from house.
I could sight else where but that would be halfway down the garden more sun but less walls to protect.
Also what can i put out have lots of cues, courgettes, tomatoes and lettuce as well as peppers , Aubergines caulis and cabbages, and herbs in the house all raised from seed.
