They insisted it stay when we sold our old house!

By beastgrower

from Parkton, Maryland

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Herbs All Year
  • Jalapenos In January
  • Odorless Except The Herbs
  • Tidy
  • Tomatoes For Two

Cons

  • None

Best Uses

  • Porch Gardening
  • Wintering Over Herbs

Comments about : Compact VegTrug™ Patio Garden:

Our Boston home had only a small patch of sunlight on the porch, perfect for the trug to grow a nice crop of tomatoes and peppers for 2, herbs year round (we hauled it into the house and nursed it by a window), to winter over some outdoor shade plants that were too nice to lose, and to start some seedlings that could grow in the garden in the spring.
The buyers, when we moved, insisted that it be part of the sale (with plants!) so we bought a new one for Maryland.

Comments about : Compact VegTrug™ Patio Garden:

This is just what I needed. Managing a garden plot by myself was getting to be a chore. Now I have a manageable size garden on my patio, and the best part is no bending over to pull weeds!

Love my VegTrug!

By Cat Lady

from Columbus, OH

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Easy To Assemble
  • Well Organized Kit

Cons

    Best Uses

      Comments about : Compact VegTrug™ Patio Garden:

      With my bad back and knees, I needed a raised bed that was deep enough to grow my vegetables. The VegTrug fulfilled my needs. The kit contained easy to follow instructions and the hardware was organized by size and amount on pieces of cardboard. No time wasted trying to figure it all out. Put it together in less than 20 minutes! My nextdoor neghbors liked mine so much that they bought one too! We all love our VegTrug. Another neighbor now wants one!!

        Comments about : Compact VegTrug™ Patio Garden:

        I haven't actually had a chance to plant my basil yet, but the VegTrug looks very nice. Easy to assemble, but some of the parts didn't actually fot together very well in that there were gaps here and there and some screws didn't go in well.

            Comments about : Compact VegTrug™ Patio Garden:

            Liked the product and not difficult to assemble, however not all sections were drilled as diagrams showed, so several pieces had to be removed and replaced when things didn't fit quite as planned.

            misaligned screw holes

              Cons

              • Screw Holes Do Not Align

              Best Uses

                Comments about : Compact VegTrug™ Patio Garden:

                Some screws holes were poorly aligned. Also, some pieces did not fit well and had to be forced via a dead-blow mallet.

                Many screws were, by design, directly fastened into end-grain. Consequently (given their misalignment) there was some unavoidable tearing/splintering that seems to have weakened the planter's structure. I don't expect it will hold up for long.

                I've been satisfied with the quality of my many previous orders from Gardener's Supply. This one was disappointing (...and gives "Made in China" a bad rep.)

                I love the height my husband has a bad shoulder and this is perfect. We planted onions, lettuce, kolarabi in one, the other has a potatoes/tomatoes combo plant I'm looking forward to see the results. It went together fairly easy and we are very happy with it.
