going to start on the boys outside home soon.

Do i need a coldframe that lets through u.v? Because glass doesnt.

Does there exist such a frame and what would it be made of. I know polycarbanate doesnt degrade with u.v. Is this the same???

I was just thinking that if the boys are quite often inside then they will need u.v to be let through.

if they are outdoors then they should get enough natural UV, even on dull days!!!! If you make sure their food is OUTSIDE the coldframe then they will soon wonder out to eat
