    I've put together a pair of 1,2 metre square raised beds (images below) and was looking for a couple of framed covers for them to protect plants over the winter and bring stuff on a bit in the spring. I thought this would be easy, but is it heck! I was expecting to be able to get one of those polythene framed tent things with zippable flaps, but I can't see a one anywhere, I can get the polythene bit off ebay - but it doesn't come with the frame for some reason.

    Also I'm not sure if a fleece cover would do the job rather than the polythene, there do seem to be a few of those around.

    Does anyone have an idea of where I could get this stuff online?

    Cheers.
