Re: Build a Simple Cold Frame

I live in Central Georgia and experimented with a cold frame two winters ago. My "cold-frame was a three foot tall, six feet long 2x2 box with visqueen plastic sheeting for a covering. I used a 100-watt trouble light to provide heat since the winter temps were well below freezing for a month or more. I put all my yard flowers and bushes in it and managed to save about half of them. Has anyone ever tried plugging in an electric blanket around the plants to increase the ambient air temperature in a small cold-frame?
