  • Winner of the 2012 Green Thumb Award for Outstanding New Product!
  • Grow a productive vegetable garden in a small space
  • Built to last of solid wood, with dovetail joints and a food-safe finish
  • VIDEO: How to assemble the VegTrug

Grow plants at an easy working height in this unique patio garden; no bending or kneeling to plant, tend and harvest. The compact size is ideal for smaller spaces, and the elevated bed means no weeds and fewer pests, too. The V-shape makes efficient use of space and planting mix — grow deep-rooted plants like tomatoes in the center, shallow-rooted crops like salad greens along the edges. Includes a fitted fabric liner to keep soil contained while letting excess water drain. Plastic feet protect wood from wet surfaces. Quality construction and easy assembly.

Sustainably Harvested Wood
  • FSC-certified, sustainable, plantation-grown fir with non-toxic stain; plastic feet; fabric liner
  • 39-1/4" L x 30" W x 31-1/2" H
  • Holds 190 quarts of container mix
  • Easy assembly; requires a Phillips screwdriver and adjustable wrench
  • Liner fabric is imported

            Pros

            • Perfect Height And Size

            Cons

              Best Uses

                Many reviewers had commented that the pieces didn't match up. If you haven't done much construction in the past the video on the VegTrug website has all the instructions and alerts you to all the steps to follow to get a perfect fit. There is definite adjustment needed for this project and it would have been helpful if there had been a link to the video on the Gardener's Supply website

                Poor workmanship and materials

                By Anne

                from Longmont, CO

                Pros

                  Cons

                  • Had To Add Support Braces
                  • Not All Holes Predrilled
                  • Wood Was Dry And Cracked

                  Best Uses

                    The wood was obviously not checked before sending it out as there were cracks in several places that required braces for support. Many of the holes that were supposed to have been predrilled were not. I don't expect it to last long. Very flimsy.

                    Thrilled with my VegTrug

                    Pros

                    • fairly easy to assemble
                    • Good For Small Spots
                    • Maximizes Sunny Spots

                    Cons

                      Best Uses

                      • Herbs
                      • Leafy Greens

                      I ordered the VegTrug to maximize the sun my deck receives. It wasn't hard to assemble, I am happy the liner is included in the kit, and the veggies and herbs I've planted in the Trug are thriving! THey're much bigger and healthier than those in my yard-based garden, and I love being able to walk out my door and clip just what I need. The Trug is sturdy and attractive.

                      Pros

                      • Convenient Height
                      • Nice size

                      Cons

                      • A Little Care Needed
                      • With Assembly

                      Best Uses

                        Fit the very limited space on back patio just right. Height is fabulous--no bending over. Am able to fit 2 tomato plants and some lettuce and carrots. Assembly directions were good but care needed to get some parts to line up just right.

                        Drilled holes don't match up

                          Cons

                          • Drilled Holes Did Not Mat

                          Best Uses

                            It's put together but was much more of a project to do than expected. Some of the drilled holes did not match up, so with one side attached the other size didn't fit. Became a two person task. Had to un-do and figure out the problem -- just annoying.

                            But it looks great and I'm anxious to get it planted, now that Spring is here.

                            I like the above ground convenience of this product. I added wheels so that it could be moved around my extra large deck. Large enough to plant all the herbs that I currently use in cooking.

                            Pros

                            • Convenient To The Max
                            • Germinates Quickly

                            Cons

                            • Wish It Was Easy To Move

                            Best Uses

                            • Greensvegherbs
                            • Mixed Sedds Herbs Veg
                            • Seed-starting
                            • Shallow Deep Rooted

                            I purchased this last year: my first foray into elevated gardening. Construction perfect: everything lined up. Took more soil than expected as it does pack down. Moisture-retaining soil well worth it in hot climes. At end of summer I pulled some items, planted parsley @ center, greens/lettuce around edges, and even with a 23 degree winter (in Calif!) the parsley shielded tender tarragon and other herbs underneath. Last week pulled up winter lettuce and sowed many seeds which are already germinating. Another small trug is on my b-day list (hint, hint DH.)

                            • Construction Flaw

                            Best Uses

                            • Outdoor gardening
                            • Raised Bed Gardening

                            Would have given this product 5 stars, except the predrilled holes did not line up and had to get manpower (my husband) to assist with assembly. Also, the leg caps do not fit tight and easily fall off when moving. Overall, a nice product I have been ogling at since they came out and am glad I purchased one.
