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.

  • Steel tube frame with plastic joints, polyethylene greenhouse and insect covers, nonwoven polypropylene frost cover, UV-stabilized polyethylene shade cover
  • 68" L x 28-1/2" W x 21" H

      Pros

      • All 3 Covers Appear To W
      • Cover Has Good Design
      • Covers Adequate
      • Easy to build
      • Metal Tube Frame

      Cons

      Best Uses

      • Use as recommended

      The frame and covers fit and will work for light weather. The split down the middle has a zipper so it can open adequately for access. Velcro holds the covers on.
      Having a way to hold open would help. I used a couple of clips

      Best Uses

      • Vegtrug Cover

      This cover is a must for your VegTrug. I used the solid cover when the nights were cool, then switched to the insect cover. My VegTrug is on a third floor deck and it can get very windy here, so I made two modifications for extra strength. I bought a second frame kit and modiffied the first frame to double up (added an extra frame piece between the existing ones). I used an ordinary plumbers pipe cutter ( a few dollars at any hardware store) to cut the metal pipes to accomidate the extra framing. I also picked up four metal clamps ($.99 each at the hardware store) to clamp the cover to the VegTrug.

          Best Uses

            Just as big as expected. Will be a great place to start and grow vegetables through out the season. Actually only took 4 64 quart bags of potting soil mix to fill. the vegtrug. The build instructions are just a schematic with how many screws go where. Watch the YouTube video on how to put it together.

            The greenhouse is a good fit once you figure out how it fits, inside the vegtrug frame. It needs to be better secured especially in windy conditions. I bought Velcro to secure the ends to the vegtrug frame and also at the front by the zipper so the wind does not lift it up with it's tube frame.

            I think this was a good buy that will provide quiet a bit of extra space for growing and starting vegetables earlier and keeping them later in the season. Time will tell.

            The Greenhouse cover was easy to assemble and set up. Loved that you could open it and ventilate the garden when weather warmed, but could protect plants from frost. Worked great.

            Keeps insect pests to a minimum

                Best Uses

                  Easy to set up and keeps lots of insects out. Butterflies can't lay their eggs...so no caterpillars munching on my vegetable leaves. Lets plenty of light in. My bush tomatoes had to be pinched back because it grew right up to the top and it's starting to push up on the material. My veggies never grew so well and fast. Thanks.

                      Cons

                      • Needs Work To Be Useful

                      Best Uses

                        The shade covers are a great idea, but they don't fit well as currently designed. There are Velcro tabs at all four corners....which is just like the other cover varieties...but because the cover doesn't extend all the way down (like the other varieties do), they really need additional tabs for the four other vertical frame pieces (2 on each side). As designed, the shorter shade cover slides around, bunches up and can blow off in a good wind. There IS a tab positioned right in the middle of both sides of the cover, but it is useless as there is not a vertical frame piece in the middle to attach it to. I'm sorry I invested in these as they just don't work very well. Hopefully, Gardener's Supply will redesign these to have the Velcro tabs in the right place....then they'll be very useful.
