Additional Information

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

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

The VegTrug Patio Garden Frame & Greenhouse Cover creates a protected microclimate for plants in your 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 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.

For extra frost protection, use the 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.

Hot summer sun can burn tender seedlings and make cool-season crops like lettuce turn bitter. The UV-stabilized polyethylene VegTrug Shade Cover, sold separately, cuts summer sun by 50%. It covers the top of the 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.

Provides great protection for early planting in New England

By SustainableGreenLife

from Orange, MA

Verified Buyer

Comments about : VegTrug™ Frame & Greenhouse Cover:

We have two VegTrugs and used these covers to protect early transplants and seed plantings through April and May in New England. The plants were protected from the cold near-frost conditions on several nights and as the weather warmed during the days, we opened up the flaps to allow air flow so the interior didn't get too hot. The covers also help preserve moisture in the soil. For extra security in windy storms, my husband clipped the plastic cover to the frames and that worked well.

Love the VegTrug Frame

By Gloria

from Danville, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about : VegTrug™ Frame & Greenhouse Cover:

I just put together the VegTrug frame. It was so easy to do. If I can do it, anyone can! It only involved one screwdriver to anchor 2 pieces to the VegTrug. I also ordered the insect cover that I added to frame. Love the ease of installing it and the easy access to my veggies and herbs.

Vegtrug the way gardening is meant to be.

Comments about : VegTrug™ Frame & Greenhouse Cover:

Awhile ago I had an idea to make some kind of above ground garden for strawberries. I'm not handy with hammer and nails but when I saw your vegtrug it was a prayer answered.

      Comments about : VegTrug™ Frame & Greenhouse Cover:

      This product is basically exactly as described. It's reasonably well made for the price, although I would not want to test it in high winds. I recommend screwing the mounting brackets into the VegTrug *before* you fill it with soil.

      Please offer frames separate from covers

      By Gloria

      from Denver, CO

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about : VegTrug™ Frame & Greenhouse Cover:

      I too, like Marta from Mesa, AZ, have had issues with the steel frame rusting and falling apart. Her suggestion of a PVC frame is a very good one. I don't want to buy a new frame and a cover, as I don't need the cover. Would appreciate resolution on this.

      Other than the frame falling apart, I love my Vegtrug! The many rabbits I have in my yard are unable to jump in for a salad buffet. I like the insect and cold frame as I live in Colorado.

      Thanks for your attention. You have always offered me great customer service when needed, which has not been often as your products are typically of high quality.

      Great to have the shade cover since we live in Florida

      By Ingrid

      from Lake Mary, FL

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about : VegTrug™ Frame & Greenhouse Cover:

      We purchased the shade covers extra for two of our three trugs. Since we live in Florida the sun can get extremely hot at times and even though our trugs are in a screened in pool area, using the shade covers helps to not burn our vegetables when it's extremely hot outside. Well worth the extra price to have especially if you're in a location where the sun can get extremely hot. Otherwise the screened covers would work just as well.
