    Comments about Vegtrug™ Patio Garden:

    This was not as difficult to assemble as other reviews had led me to believe. I watched the video, but never opened the manual.

    After assembly, I filled it up with the recommended ratio of soils and mediums. The lettuce and spinach seeds have grown well enough, but there's no sign of the tomato, basil, pepper or celery that I put in there. I have put carrot seeds into the center, but have been using the sides to hold potted seedlings until they are ready to go into the garden. Since the seeds never grew, I will be trying my luck with potted tomato and pepper plants later on.

    Overall, I do like how sturdy it seems. The frame fits very nicely, even though I forgot to screw it in before filling with soil. It has endured a couple of thunderstorms, and the seedlings I forgot to bring in one night were fine in the morning. That bug net really keeps things out- including water. So you do have to open up the net to water your plants.

        Comments about Vegtrug™ Patio Garden:

        The VegTrug is made of high quality components. My husband and I assembled it in about an hour and a half. I recommend viewing the video before beginning assembly. The most important tip we took away from the video is to leave everything loose until you've got all the parts connected.
        We're looking forward to a great harvest!

              Both my wife and I have bad backs and have gardened in raised beds for years, but, even those had gotten difficult to manage. The Veg-Trug has allowed us to do some serious vegetable and Herb gardening again. Keeping the weeds and bugs out without poison is also a cinch. Thank you Gardener's Supply!

                      I got one Trug three years ago and ordered a second for this year. The directions for assembly aren't great but a lot of it is obvious. Having two people makes it much easier. We have the light color (as opposed to the black). Before doing any kind of planting we brushed the with vegetable oil. While the three-year old one has darkened, there is no sign of rot, mold or decay after weathering three years in sun, wind, rain, snow and ice. I expect the new one will weather the same way. I start my seeds directly in them with the greenhouse cover. Once the growing season winds down I cut back plants such as tomatoes and put the greenhouse cover back in. I also replant my lettuce in September. Last year by doing this I was able to pick tomatoes and lettuce till December. It is now early June and I'm already getting all my herbs, lettuces, green beans and broccoli to feed my husband and I as well as give a lot away. The only other modification I did was lash short poles to the cover frame to provide support for the tomatoes.

                      If all the pieces would have fit perfectly together, leaving no little overhangs, I would have rated it 5 stars! I injured my back and had to have surgery, so I thought that I would not be able to have any garden at all this year, until I saw the Vegtrug in the catalog! So far, so good! My tomatoes and peppers LOVE it, and I started some herbs and lettuce at the shallower edges. I can get to everything easily and am hoping to have one of the best harvests I have ever had in my limited gardening area!

                        I have been eyeing the VegTrug for years and finally bought 4 this year in two different sizes. Having grown my tomatoes in a bunch of small containers the past several years, I was thrilled to be able to consolidate them in just a few VegTrugs AND be able to add in a bunch of herbs and salad greens. So much less work to water them all now in the 4 VegTrugs than in 30+ pots--they hold the moisture far longer and I get lettuce as a bonus!
