VegTrug™ Patio Garden Set Includes Covers to Create an Ideal Growing Environment

  • The VegTrug™ is the winner of the 2012 Green Thumb Award for Outstanding New Product!
  • Set includes VegTrug Patio Garden, Frame and two Covers
  • Covers let you extend the growing season and protect plants from pests
  • Grow a productive vegetable garden in a small space

Buy together and save! This set includes the VegTrug Patio Garden, the VegTrug Frame & Greenhouse Cover and the VegTrug Insect Cover.

The VegTrug Patio Garden lets you garden at an easy working height; no bending or kneeling to plant, tend and harvest. Elevated bed means no weeds and fewer pests, too. The V-shape makes efficient use of space and planting mix — grow deep-rooted plants like tomatoes in the center, shallow-rooted crops along the edges. Includes a fitted fabric liner to keep soil contained while letting excess water drain. Plastic feet protect wood from wet surfaces. Easy assembly.

The VegTrug Set includes the Vegtrug Frame & Greenhouse Cover. You can start planting earlier in spring and extend the growing season later into fall for an even bigger 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.

The set also includes the polyethylene micro-mesh VegTrug Insect Cover to protect 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.

    Great way to garden for someone with a bad back. I put wheels on mine so I can relocate it. Bought another one for my daughter-in-law. Covers make it very versatile.

          Comments about Vegtrug™ Patio Garden with Covers:

          I have three of these, and love them. However, their manufacturing process is flawed. All screw holes come pre-drilled. That's great, except, the screw holes in the end pieces do not line up with the boards the end pieces connect to. I bought these things three years apart. Notified Gardeners and the manufacturer about the flaws. Neither cared to respond, nor has the manufacturer corrected the flaw. Simply necessary to re-drill the holes and continue construction.

          Very pleased overall. Quality materials and clear instructions . Video was great too as a back up. Only issue is that one seam of the insect net separated and raveled the first time I stretched it over the frame.

          Comments about Vegtrug™ Patio Garden with Covers:

          The Veg Trug arrived in late March and was easy to assemble with minimal assistance from a second person. We planted the Trug, by April 1, with broccoli, herbs, lettuce and spinach, put on the greenhouse cover and began to watch things grow. As the weather warmed, we have added to tomato plans, two peppers, switched out the spinach to chard (which was bolting in early June), onions, basil and other herbs. Everything we have planted has thrived and we have enjoyed more fresh food than ever before. I highly recommend the Veg Trug!!

              Love the garden. Had a few broken sides with shipping but gardeners supply sent new ones right away. I have a lot of dear and with the cover on at night they do not touch it. Used the green house cover to start some carrots and onions early and it worked great. No bending over to kill your back. Definitely would recommend.

              Excellent Product, cheap modification for wind area's

                Comments about Vegtrug™ Patio Garden with Covers:

                This is a great product. Saves the back by eliminating having to bend down to tend plants, easy to assemble, keeps you from losing dirt out the bottom, with the top it significantly extends the growing season, etc. I highly recommend it and after the first season with one, decided to buy four more.

                Two modifications I would suggest for windy area's are as follows: add extra brackets securing the top to the bottom and use black duct tape to secure the cross pieces (see photo's).

                I live in a very high wind area on the side of a mountain, 60 mph winds are not unheard of. The top held up great the first year but in the second year of the wind buffeting the top back and forth the hollow aluminum bar on the bottom eventually broke. The wind worked the aluminum bar which is bracketed on each side to the base with one bracket back and forth against that single securing bracket until it eventually bent and broke. By adding a couple more brackets on each side, this back and forth motion is prevented (the picture attached is a bit of overkill but I wanted to show the original bracket in the middle and the new brackets on each side). Additionally, by using black duct tape to secure the aluminum bars to the cross pieces one creates a more sturdy but still flexible top (again see pictures). Total cost for both modifications < $5.

                Again, the VegTrug is a great product which I highly recommend.

                  You will need to use a drill as some of the holes are not perfectly aligned but this is not difficult to assemble at all. Directions are great and it comes in pre-formed sides. Well packaged, well made. Takes two people to do it right as one needs to hold while the other drills/screws it together.
                  Mhy neighbors were clammering to get one once they saw mine.

                  Comments about Vegtrug™ Patio Garden with Covers:

                  Bought this to expand my garden and to get a head start on Spring planting here in New England. It took about 45 minutes to put together. Watch the YouTube video as the enclosed instructions are merely a schematic with arrows pointing to screw locations. Suggest putting it together on a flat area, like a sidewalk so it's level then move it to your permanent location to fill it.

                  It actually only took four 64 quart bags of potting soil mix to fill. The description says it holds 380 quarts of soil, I had to return the 2 extra bags I bought. I also got the greenhouse cover with it and those instructions are not clear that the supports go INSIDE the vegtrug. Strongly suggest buying velcro to secure the ends of the cover and in a couple of spots along the sides as well. The next day after I put this together was very windy and despite being in a protected place against my garage the whole cover almost flew off a few times. I had to secure it with bungee cords until I could go buy the Velcro.

                  I like the design and it's capacity. I've already planted it with Romaine, radishes, mesculn mix and some herbs. The green house cover is working out well as our weather went from the 70's last weekend to 30 degree nights this week. The plants are all secure and happy under the cover and I'm looking forward to fresh salads in the next couple of weeks. I may buy another one of these to expand my garden further.

                    I love these and purchased two. I am growing vegetables and herbs in mine. My husband put them together by himself with no problem. They are very sturdy and I expect they will last a long time. I would buy more if I had the room. I am older and have knee problems so these allow me to still grow my own vegetables. The covers work great also!! We live in the Pacific Northwest so the greenhouse cover works great for our cool Spring nights.
