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.

          Second Purchase for Compact Veg Trugs

              Best Uses

                I purchased two Compact Veg Trugs that allow me to incorporate vegetable gardening into the landscape of our suburban home. This is the second frost covering with frame I've purchased so that I can extend the growing season with both Veg Trugs. The frame rods do not fit tightly at the junctures so water gathers in the metal elbows and I suspect these pieces could corrode over time. The coverings are well made and work very well as frost protection, so watering the plants is needed or opening the zippered flaps on milder days with rain. Overall, I am very pleased with the Veg Trugs and cover systems. I did purchase Eco sealant for the Veg Trugs to use annually as a protection for the wood.

                      Top covers need to clearly show which come with frames. We added wheels.

                                This product is good in theory, but one doesn't fit and you can't zip it all the way. The other one is fine, so must just be a mistake.

                                  I have arthritis & can't bend or kneel; this product allows me to have a garden and fresh produce. I have 2 of the middle size; perfect for the patio & what I plant. I'm enjoying salad items, herbs & even tried bush green beans and beets. The liner ripped on the edge but that was the only disappointment. This product is so well-made, attractive & well designed, I just love it. Also have and use the insect & frost frames/covers and they are well-worth having since we have so many birds & animals and live in a northern US climate.
