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.

      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

      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.

      Great product to protect gardening from insects

      Comments about : VegTrug™ Frame & Greenhouse Cover:

      We have our trugs inside our screened in pool area, so we don't use it much; however, I highly recommend it for Trugs kept outside of screened in areas. Quite well made!

      Comments about : VegTrug™ Frame & Greenhouse Cover:

      I bought a VegTrug last season with the greenhouse and bug covers. It was so easy to put together and a perfect height for my bad back. This year I wanted to add the shade cover for those hot summer days! I know the quality and convenience will be as good as I expect it to be. Thanks Gardeners Supply Company for always being there with everything we gardners need with great costumer service!

      Need to offer frames seperate from covers

      By Marta

      from Mesa, AZ

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about : VegTrug™ Frame & Greenhouse Cover:

      I love the vegtrugs. In fact, I owned 8 at my last address and when we moved this year, we planned our new yard to include 8 new ones. The problem I have is with the frame quality & cover selection. I live in the Phoenix, AZ area, so a greenhouse cover is of no use to me. However, I have to pay for a greenhouse cover in order to order a frame. I already own 8 never used greenhouse covers from my last house (and they are NOT cheap...especially for something I'll never use)....I don't need 8 more! Seems that the company could sell the frames alone and allow a customer to buy the covers he/she can use. Also, the frames are steel....not pvc. The steel very quickly rusts where it inserts into the connectors. The frames rarely last more than 1 or 2 seasons. I think they might want to consider redesigning the frames to be made out of pvc instead of steel.

      While I'm still fighting bugs trapped inside, the veggies are still doing better than the ones without covers.
