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
  • Easy assembly
  • Cover fabrics are imported

      Love the Concept... NOT Insect Covers

      By Avid Southwest Gardener

      from Tucson, AZ

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

        Cons

        • Not Insect Proof
        • zippers fail

        Best Uses

          I have two regular and one compact VegTrug and am very happy with them but not with the insect covers. The covers are open along the bottom so do not keep insects out. I've had insect damage to plants in all three VegTrugs in spite of the insect covers. Also, the zippers have failed on both regular VegTrug insect covers. They are sown in too close to the teeth on the zippers.

                            Best Uses

                              Even treated, fir is not a good choice of material and I feel the product was way overpriced given the material used. PVC material or product similar to Trek decking would be great. The product was not easily assembled and in fact needed some alterations to work. The fact that the frame was not included with the frost cover was not apparent from the quick view. On the plus side, my octagenerian parents for whom I purchased it were happy to be able to garden again. Hopefully it will hold up long enough for them to do that as long as they want.

                              happy husband's "portable garden"

                              I bought the trug and cover for my husband's birthday. He loves it. The cover was wanted to keep out air-borne weed seeds as well as bugs.

                              We worked together to assemble them which was easy and now have the planting done. We used seed rather than the plants suggested.

                              it's not clear from the picture that the frame for the cover actally goes inside the trug.

                                    This will be used by my wife for planting her vegitable garden and will be easy due to height and not having to bend over to plant.

                                    I really like the product because of its looks and height. We will be adding the soil and plants in a couple of weeks and I think it will be perfect. Precision in assembly makes a difference so line up the different parts carefully. 1/4 inch makes a difference at the end!

                                      This was my first foray into waist high gardening and I will never go back to bending and stooping again! VegTrug is so easy to assemble, you can get going quickly - and with the green house cover you will be harvesting crops long before your neighbors. I ordered another raised bed from Gardeners Supply and plan on buying more of these VegTrugs for years to come.
