Additional Information

Frame and Covers Create an Ideal Growing Climate in your Compact VegTrug™ Patio Garden

  • Outfit your Compact VegTrug™ Patio Garden with a convenient frame plus durable greenhouse, insect, frost or shade covers
  • Protect plants from cold temperatures, harsh winds, heavy rains, insect attack and harsh sun
  • Designed to fit the Compact VegTrug Patio Garden, sold separately

The VegTrug Frame & Greenhouse Cover creates a protected microclimate for plants in your Compact VegTrug. You can start planting earlier in spring and extend the growing season later into fall for an even bigger and better harvest. The easy-to-install, 21"-high steel frame installs in minutes with convenient push-fit connectors, and the reinforced polyethylene greenhouse cover has heavy-duty stitching and zippers. The cover slips snugly over the frame and attaches with strong VELCRO® brand tabs. Zips open for ventilation and easy access to crops.

Note: The following covers are designed specifically for use with the frame from the Compact VegTrug Frame & Greenhouse Cover set.

Once the weather warms up, you can replace the greenhouse cover with the VegTrug Insect Cover, sold separately. The polyethylene micro-mesh cover protects plants from insects, birds, harsh winds and hungry deer. To install, simply remove the greenhouse cover from the frame, and then install the insect cover in its place. Attaches with strong VELCRO® brand tabs. Zips open for ventilation and easy access to crops.

Hot summer sun can burn tender seedlings and make cool-season crops like lettuce turn bitter. The UV-stabilized polyethylene Compact VegTrug Shade Cover, sold separately, cuts summer sun by 50%. It covers the top of the Compact VegTrug and extends 10" down the sides. This leaves the lower sides open so air can circulate freely around plants. To install, simply remove the greenhouse cover from the frame, and then install the shade cover in its place, securing it with the VELCRO® brand tabs.

For extra frost protection, use the Compact VegTrug Frost Cover, sold separately. Made from nonwoven polypropylene, it protects plants from cold temperatures, wind and frost, allowing you to extend the growing season earlier in spring and later into fall. To install, simply remove the greenhouse cover from the frame, and then install the frost cover in its place. Attaches with strong VELCRO® brand tabs. Zippers allow easy access to plants.

    Comments about : Compact VegTrug™ Frame and Greenhouse Cover:

    I started my VegTrug garden without the frame & greenhouse cover, and things were slow growing. Added the frame and greenhouse cover and I am getting harvested green and herbs every three to four days.

    Poor Quality - Didn't last One Day

    By AZ

    from SE AZ

    Comments about : Compact VegTrug™ Frame and Greenhouse Cover:

    I purchased a VegTrug w/covers two years again and the quality was Great! Lasted through the wind and high temps of an AZ summer. The replacement liner and cover were not of the quality purchased originally. The liner is thin and flimsy and the insect cover was so poorly stitched at the side seam that it didn't last one day after installation.

    Allows earlier planting

    By Bebo

    from North Texas

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about : Compact VegTrug™ Frame and Greenhouse Cover:

    Here in North Texas, we get few freezes after the middle of February, so here is a great urge to plant early. However, we do get several frosts through the first of April. This cover allows me to plant earlier, yet protect against the later frosts or even a light freeze.

        Comments about : Compact VegTrug™ Frame and Greenhouse Cover:

        My veggies had been limping along in the cooler weather, and then we bought the greenhouse cover and frame. What a difference this made in just one week. I am duly impressed; so much so that I am going to buy another for my other VegTrug.

        Comments about : Compact VegTrug™ Frame and Greenhouse Cover:

        Bought this hoping that it would fit my gronomics raised bed - fits just enough to keep my lettuce from burning in the sun all summer. Worth the investment.

            Comments about : Compact VegTrug™ Frame and Greenhouse Cover:

            The trug looks good and was not too difficult to put together. I am not sure bow long it will hold up as the wood does not seem to be of a long lasting quality. Time will tell.

            • Read All Fine Print

            Comments about : Compact VegTrug™ Frame and Greenhouse Cover:

            When I ordered insect cover for my VegTrug, I was not told that I needed to have the frame which only comes with the Greenhouse cover. When I got the insect cover, it was of no use without the frame. I can't understand why the frame can't be sold with any cover that fits the Veg Trug. It is a sale for you either way.
