Warm the soil in your garden beds and begin cold crops earlier this Spring with a solar greenhouse made from a refurbished box spring mattress.
- Simply strip the mattress material from it’s wooden frame.
- Measure and cut heavy duty plastic sheeting (from hardware store) to re-wrap the box spring frame.
- Use weatherstripping and a staple gun to staple the plastic sheeting to the frame.
- Warm the soil by placing the box spring greenhouse over a garden bed a couple of weeks before planting or transplanting.
Your cold weather vegetables will thrive this Spring protected by a box spring greenhouse.
