Alpine Frames

What is an Alpine Frame?

An alpine frame is a well-ventilated structure used to protect plants from weather extremes and in particular from winter wet.  It is essentially a greenhouse, cold frame or other growing structure that is modified to create excellent air circulation and low humidity growing conditions.  Individual plants may be plunged into sandbeds, further moderating temperatures and keeping plants evenly moist.
