looks wonderful! the planting looks super. Perhaps a hosta or fushia that they could take shade under, and edible if they got peckish.

Well done Julia, lovely enclosure, a hosta is a great idea for the coldframe,as it will be great for shade too if it is a little too warm in the coldframe yet too cool outside.

A lot of thought has gone into your enclosure which is brilliant. Give your self a pat on the back.
