Grow houses

Now then, you learned bunch. Now that I've filled my cold frame I'd like a bigger upright version, a bit like this

Though I can see from reviews of that and similar they are made of cheese.

I wonder why IKEA don't take their Tordh https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/p/tordh-shelving-unit-outdoor-brown-stained-s69316182/ and make polycarbonate panels for it, it would probably be more sturdy.

If I got a more expensive one like this would it be any better, or just as crap but with a bigger hole in my pocket?

I have a couple of Aldi (or possibly Lidl) cold frames. Hardwood frames with polycarbonate 'glass'.
I cannot remember when I bought them, but it was quite a few years ago.
Eventually the polycarbonate started to degrade. All I did was get some more from B&Q/Wickes and replace.
Doesn't look amazingly pretty, but it works.

After much prevarication I decided today I would buy the Aldi one. Sold out now, of course  :facepalm:
