      • Small Vegetable Gardening

      Looking forward to planting tomatoes, and peppers. Good value. Very hard to assemble...in fact we have to disassemble and start over..the top slats do not fix correctly. Hope to get it right once we start again.

      Small veg trug is wonderful!

      Pros

      • Easy to use

      Cons

        Best Uses

          Product came in record time (a few days). Hired someone to put it together - happened in an hour or so. I planted herbs and put on the bug cover. The next day, we had freeze warnings. I put on the heavier cover and hoped. Well, after 3 days of freezing night temps, the plants are thriving and the cover was great at holding the heat.

          The entire unit lets me plants veggies and not have them eaten by rabbits or bears....(I hope about the bears). Love this trig (I purchased the small with the covers and all the soil needed (10 bags).

          Pros

          • Attractive
          • Easy assembly
          • Holds a lot
          • Nice height

          Cons

          • Kind Of Cheap Wood

          Best Uses

          • Gardening

          We purchased this product to add to our raised bed garden, this is a big departure from our norm. The veg trug is nice and i like the height. We were able to assemble it pretty quickly. However we thought the wood was a bit cheap and really unprotected so we took the extra step and painted it with some leftover deck paint. Hope this seals it well enough so it will last through a couple of our Western Washington summers.

          Slug free lettuce garden

          By I Luv Maine

          from Cape Elizabeth, ME

          We grow lettuce and alpine strawberries in this. The deer have not dared to go up the stairs onto the deck. The winter moth caterpillars have not made it into the lettuce either. I might have to buy another.

          • Herb garden

          We gave this Vegtrug to my BIL for a birthday gift. We put it together for him and planted everything...huge hit!

          When you assemble, make sure you put someone in charge...we had too many chefs stirring the soup. The direction of each piece is important!

          Cons

          Best Uses

          • Great For Small Garden

          Some of the boards did not fit well,but managed to get it built. I like the way I can just stand and plant. I can no longer get down on my knees so this product was for me. I have already told several friends that were interested. I can't wait to watch my plants grow and produce. Overall a great product.It was also helpful to be told how much soil it would take to fill the VegTrug.

          No more bending for Veggies

          By Marie, the Gardener

          Pros

            Cons

              Best Uses

                What is great is you don't have to bend over to work your vegetables; the trug is waist high; it was also so very easy for my husband to put it together.

                Also, the dirt that I purchased for it is so very light; I could never had mixed that type myself.

                Great so far!

                    Best Uses

                      A great product so far. I purchased this about a month ago and assembled it with no problems at all.

                      It is small, but has ample room for vegetable growth inside.

                      The major pro for me is that I have a very small yard, and this is perfect for me as it fits about anywhere.
