I've finally made one out of scrap materials - it's not pretty but it's functional. I try to get some pics up as a warning to others.
Self-sufficient in rasberries and bindweed. Slug pellets can be handy.

That looks good to me -
I've got three coldframes - there's an aluminium / glass one that I got half price manager's special from B&Q, a wood and twinwall polycarb I built using the offcuts from the greenhouse and a cedar / twinwall Haxnicks that I got from ebay. The last is terrible, the wood was treated but it warps and the polycarb falls out. I'd have been really cross if I'd paid fifty quid as they are in the shops. Mind you, the 25 seems a waste.
That's the trouble with this growing lark, you always could do with a bit more space, another foot of greenhouse, an extra coldframe, a bigger shed, ...
