    I have made frames up from blue water pipe and battens. They are made to fit on my raised beds. I just move them to where I need them & drape whatever covering is needed - clear plastic, enviromesh, bird proof netting or fleece.

    I had an old clothes airer that i bent in half then covered with strong polythene, works well as a cloche, also a three tiered hanging vegetable rack ( no where to hang it in new kitchen ) now gets used as a 3 tier hanging basket!!

    Was taking apart my daughters wooden drawers ( the bits in the middle of drawers were falling through ) and noticed that the front and sides of the actual drawers are a perfect size for raised beds in my border area!! a little bit of weathershield paint and i have ready made mini raised beds!! The main frame i will convert into run for my rabbit.

    either....used is better as its usually free try peeking in skips or wandering past building sites smiling nicely or ask on your local freecycle group

    if you have to buy new try a proper builders yard as its cheaper, tends to be expensive on the postage from the web
