Gardening: Hotbeds & Cold Frames

PDF

Publication #: B-1151
Date Published: 02/01/2004

Publication Author(s):
Karen L. Panter

Description:
Hot beds are used most often for starting and growing young plants in late winter and spring. Seedlings are often started in a greenhouse and moved to a hotbed when they fill the available space. Hot beds provide an economical way to grow plants until they are transplanted to their permanent outdoor locations.Cold frames work as solar heat traps to warm soil and plants during late fall and early spring. They can also improve the growth of cold-sensitive crops such as tomatoes when they are grown in areas with low summer temperatures.Gardening: Hot Beds and Cold Frames teaches readers how to construct, cover, heat, and manage hot beds and how to build, shelter, and manage cold frames.
