English term or phrase: Cold Frame
Dear Colleague,
can you please confirm if the word coldframe in this context means miniserra or it is has to be added something like:
miniserra a freddo
miniserra a bassa temperatura.

The original sentence is as follows:
Sow in containers in cold frame in spring (for protection and to ensure hardiness).

Thank you very much.
