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

      shade cover needs refinement

      By Marta

      from Gilbert, AZ

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

      • Good idea

      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.

          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.

                                Great idea, poor quality

                                By Marnie

                                Cons

                                • No Frame Wfrost Cover
                                • Not Easily Assembled
                                • Poor material choice

                                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.
