We love the selection of cold frames that Waltons have on their site. Not only this, but they make finding them and learning all about each of them very easy. Even if you do not really know what a cold frame is and why you need one, you will easily be able to understand what the information they are telling you. Surprisingly, each cold frame  more...

does have a few extras for you to consider which may help your plants grow even more so be sure to look into that. It is not just the selection and the user friendliness of the site that we really like. They also have their cold frames priced very fairly, with half of them costing under £50.

In a just world these guys would share the top spot with Waltons as what they are offering is just as good. They have a selection of five different cold frames for your consideration and as well as being informative about the different cold frames they are selling they also give you some advice on why adding a cold frame to your garden is  more...

a great idea which we really like. We really appreciate how Buy Sheds Direct have made it as easy as possible for people to not only purchase a cold frame, but also tell them why they should.

We will admit right away that we had to use their search engine, but typing cold frame gives you access to their whole selection which was nice to see. They may not have a wide choice, but they do have a cold frame made from wood, plastic and even some kind of netting material, so you have a very wide selection in the style of cold frame  more...

here even if their quantity is not all that great. While we really liked the cold frames that B&Q are offering, we would say that this is more for those of you who already know about cold frames and have an idea of what you are looking for.

The thing we really liked about Taylors Garden Buildings was how while they are offering a few different cold frames, each of which has a great description. In this same section they also have plenty of other things that will help your garden as well such as planters, beds and other items. So while you may come here looking for a great cold  more...

frame, which you will find by the way, we are sure that your wallet will be crying as you add many other things to the order as well. If you want a cold frame, but are also in the market for a few other extras like beds and planters, then you can get all of that as well as your awesome cold frame here.

Shed Store may only have a small selection of cold frames, but they have cleverly made sure that they have a cold frame that will suit people of all budgets, which is great. When you type in cold frame to their search engine then they give you not only them, but a couple of other similar products which we thought was pretty smart. Their  more...

cold frames do have detailed descriptions, telling you what makes that particular one special and why it will help your plants grow and stay safe. So if this is something you do not know a whole lot about then you certainly will once you have finished on the site. We do wish that they offered a few more extras and had some more pictures, but Shed Store for the most part are a great cold frame retailer.

How we wish we could have placed Sheds.co.uk higher on our list. To start with they have a very easy to use website that gives you all their cold frames in their own section. Each one then makes it very easy to know what they are all about and in general the site really could not be any more of a pleasure to use. They even tell you why adding a  more...

cold frame to your garden is such a great idea and that is something we think is really good as a cold frame is not something everyone thinks to add to their garden. Anyway the reason they did not crack the top five was that they only offer two cold frames, a single and a double. But while they only offer two, they are two very good cold frames so we would still highly recommend that you check them out.

There is only one cold frame for sale on the Garden Buildings Direct website as of writing, but it still has its own section on the site so that does give good hope that they will flesh this section out with more cold frames in the future. This is a site we really like as they make it so easy to find what you want. The information they give is also  more...

really good so you will now all you need to know about this cold frame. One thing we will say about the only cold frame that they offer, it is a raised one which is quite unusual and not something that is sold on too many other sites so if the idea of a raised cold frame interests you then be sure to give it a look.

We had to resort to using their search engine and were a little disappointed to see that Homebase only carry one kind of cold frame. Still if a good, budget cold frame is what you are after then this one would work out fine for you. Also to be fair, they do give you all the information you could possibly need as well as multiple photos of the cold  more...

frame. Their search engine does bring up a few other things that would be ideal for those of you who are into gardening, but it also brings up some truly random items as well which some of you may find annoying.

The selection of cold frames that are on the Sheds World site are what keeps them from the bottom spot. They do have some very nice looking cold frames here and the site is actually very pleasant to use, with the cold frames having their very own dedicated section which we like to see. All of the cold frames we looked at on their site came with  more...

a very detailed description, although a few of them would have benefited from at least one more photo. If Sheds World had a better reputation as far as delivery times and customer service went then we can honestly say that they would have probably featured a little higher up the list.

Last of all we have Wickes. Now Wickes have a ton and we mean a ton of different items that can store plants, help your plants grow and even make sure you have the most delicious tomatoes in your town. But finding a cold frame on their site was quite the frustrating experience. To start with when you type cold frame into their search engine  more...

you get nothing to do with gardening at all, instead you are greeted with a huge list of window frames which while we are no experts on household windows, we feel the chance of them helping you grow some award winning plants is very slim.
