Description

  • 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

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.

    Comments about Vegtrug™ Patio Garden with Covers:

    We are converting our raised garden beds to the vegtrug. We will grow our entire garden this year in 3 vegtrugs. I like the concept of an entire system to start and maintain your garden plants and the ability to start early and extend the season.

    It would be nice to see taller system to accommodate taller plantings and use the accessories. The accessories i.e. bean trellis etc seem overpriced.

      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

              The product arrived intact and packaged well.My husband assembled it without any problem.We sealed it with a clear sealant. I planted herbs and lettuce. Drainage is outstanding and the lettuce and herbs are growing beautifully!I have harvested several crops already. It adds beauty to our yard and I am 100% pleased with this purchase. I may order another in the Fall.
