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.

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.

      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.

      Disappointing

      By Sherry

      from Virginia Beach

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Keeps Birds Out

      Cons

      • Big Bugs Get In
      • Cut Worms Get In
      • Doesn't Protect From Much
      • Tiny Flies Get In

      Best Uses

      • Keeps Birds Out
      • Softens The Rainfall
      • Squirrels Don't Bother It

      Comments about : Compact VegTrug™ Frame and Greenhouse Cover:

      I'm very disappointed with this insect cover. It's so loose around the bottom that the bugs just crawl and fly right on in. It's a great idea poorly executed. I'm thinking about putting strips of Velcro all along the bottom. However, given that it is a garden area, a lot of debris will most likely be collected as well. As a new veggie gardener my bubble quickly burst the first morning I unzipped my insect screen. I am waging a search and destroy mission against cut worm every day. Little flies, ugly shiny bugs with things that look like horns on their heads, orange and black segmented flyers! You name it, it's in there! How do these things even known there's a garden under there! I'm growing organically so not much is helping get rid of them. I need the good bugs!

      By Sherry

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Easy To Put Together
      • Fits Vegtrug Perfectly
      • Good Starter Cover
      • Practical

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Good For Starting Seeds
        • Holds Heat

        Comments about : Compact VegTrug™ Frame and Greenhouse Cover:

        I haven't had to use the cover a lot as yet because our weather was already getting warm when I set up. However, I'm looking forward to my fall garden. I'm quite sure this will enable my seeds and plants to thrive during our fluctuating temperatures.
        It is a stiff material. This makes it hard to work under as the flaps keep wanting to close on you. Perhaps it will soften in time.

        Veg Trugs Make Gardening Easier

        By MKTG

        from Columbus, OH

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about : Compact VegTrug™ Frame and Greenhouse Cover:

        I have two Veg Trugs that have withstood the test of time--they have held up well and I like the covers. I have the insect cover to discourage pests and can extend the growing season with the greenhouse cover. I plan to plant early which the greenhouse cover allows.
