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
  • The VegTrug is built to last of solid wood, with dovetail joints and a food-safe finish
  • VIDEO: How to assemble the VegTrug

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.

Sustainably Harvested Wood
  • FSC-certified, sustainable, plantation-grown fir with non-toxic stain; plastic feet; fabric liner; polyethylene covers
  • 70" L x 30" W x 31-1/2" H
  • Holds 380 quarts of container mix
  • Easy assembly; requires a Phillips screwdriver and adjustable wrench
  • Cover and liner fabrics are imported

    Comments about Vegtrug™ Patio Garden with Covers:

    We originally came from an area of New jersey with rich soil and a good growing season. Being a great gardener was expected. We then moved to Cape Cod where the soil is questionable and the New England "summer" is as well. We couldn't grow dirt!
    After many years of failures, we turned in desperation to the Vegtrug. The first one, had poor assembly directions but by the time we purchased a second, the new directions were detailed and far easier to follow.
    Why did we get two? The things work! We have had our most successful summer of vegetables ever up here. My only suggestion? Get the larger version and the option package that includes the bug screen and the hothouse cover kit. Well worth it.
    If we can find room, there will be a #3 in our future.

      Comments about Vegtrug™ Patio Garden with Covers:

      We came from an area in New Jersey where you had rich soil and expected to be a great gardener. After moving to Cape Cod, where real soil is close to nonexistent, we were frustrated for years. Unable to grow any basic vegetables over this new ground and different, New England "summer", we turned in desperation to the Vegtrug. Granted, it takes some time to set up and it takes quite a bit of soil but the results were amazing!
      We now have 2 of them. The first one, and I'm guessing, an earlier version, had vague, skimpy directions for assembly. The second more than made up for that shortcoming with clear, very detailed ones.
      My suggestions? Buy the larger of the models and get the screen/hothouse cover option. Well worth it. If we can find more room, we'll get another!

        Living in Northern MI short growing seasons I got a 4 week start with the greenhouse cover- I feel cover is must have purchase - & will have tomatoes at least by early August instead of September I planted radish and carrots in-between the tomatoes so easy to thin every few days I wanted the darker color but since it was on backorder I didn't want to wait - so glad I did I'm in love with gardening again. Not difficult to assemble but did take some work getting it all lined up glad I had a man around the house for this

                  I enjoyed putting the Vegtrug together, it was very easy! It is quite attractive in the yard. Peas are popping up and green beans will be up soon. I look forward to adding another Vegtrug to my garden next year.

                    The Vegtrug was much easier to put together than I expected. A hammer, crescent wrench, and power Phillips head screw driver were all that was needed. It only took about 1-1.5 hours to put together by myself and I am not particularly handy.

                          I could not indicate above that it was extremely difficult to assemble. My son & daughter (who are tall, strong & excellent assemblers) tried to put this together for me for my birthday. They have assembled several other items for me before & have always managed to figure out instructions in foreign languages, missing parts, etc. They found the screws too small, other missing parts & it is still unassembled after three weeks. We will look at it again, but I had NO idea it was this hard to put together. I purchased it; their gift to me was assembling it. All of us were disappointed as it has not worked out well. If/When we figure it out, I'll write more later. It's also really irritating that I cannot mark DIFFICULT TO ASSEMBLE on the ratings above.
