Cold frames are now open

The cold frames are now free from snow. I have now partially opened them up to ventilate them; this helps keep the auriculas dry and prevent any condensation forming.
The auriculas are not showing any signs of new growth yet, but hopefully if the weather improves they will get going; I can then remove the old leaves and clean them up a bit.

The cold frames are there somewhere

We've had quite a bit of snow over the last week, around 50cms, so it was time to scrape it from the greenhouse roof and my auricula cold frames. The cold frames have almost disappeared in the snow, it took a while to locate them and remove some snow from them.
Cold frames before the little extra snow.
