Additional Information

Frame and Covers for 40" Trough and Wallhugger VegTrugs™

  • Outfit your 40", flat-back Trough or Wallhugger VegTrug™ with a convenient frame plus durable greenhouse, insect, and frost covers
  • Protect plants from cold temperatures, harsh winds, heavy rains and insect attack
  • Designed to fit the 18" x 40" Trough VegTrug and 18" x 40" Wallhugger VegTrug, sold separately

The frame and greenhouse cover creates a protected microclimate for plants in your 40" long, flat-back Trough or Wallhugger VegTrug™. You can start planting earlier in spring and extend the growing season later into fall for an even bigger and better harvest. The 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.

Note: The following covers are designed specifically for use with the frame from the VegTrug Frame & Greenhouse Cover set.

Once the weather warms up, you can replace the greenhouse cover with the Insect Cover, sold separately. The polyethylene micro-mesh cover protects 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.

For extra frost protection, use the Frost Cover, sold separately. Made from nonwoven polypropylene, it protects plants from cold temperatures, wind and frost, allowing you to extend the growing season earlier in spring and later into fall. To install, simply remove the greenhouse cover from the frame, and then install the frost cover in its place. Attaches with strong VELCRO brand tabs. Zippers allow easy access to plants.

    Comments about : Frame & Greenhouse Cover For 40" Trough and Wallhugger VegTrug™:

    I bought this to use with the VegTrug frame and it did a nice job through the growing season. The holes are rather small so you won't get a lot of rain water coming through. The cover is made of a nice solid material that looks like it should last.
    My only suggestion to Gardeners Supply is to consider providing a Velcro strip at the bottom edge of the cover and a strip for the VegTrug as this would help keep out industrious animals (I had one who ate my parsley and kale). I solved this problem by buying large size alligator clips (used to keep papers together) and using them to clamp the frame to the VegTrug but Velcro would be a bit easier.

        Comments about : Frame & Greenhouse Cover For 40" Trough and Wallhugger VegTrug™:

        I was going to make my own cover for my VegTrug using bamboo stakes and netting and then found this. It is much better than anything I could have done. The frame goes together easily and fits well in the VegTrug. You just need to screw it in to the wood so it stays attached. It only took a few minutes to do and looks very nice.
        I have been using the insect cover during the summer and it has worked well. I will put the greenhouse cover on for the fall and again in the spring s I can extend my growing season a few weeks.
        The only reason I gave it fours stars is I did have an industrious animal who was able to get between the cover and the frame and feast on my kale and parsley. I solved this problem by buying large size alligator clips (used to keep papers together) and using them to clamp the frame to the VegTrug. Problem solved! Gardeners Supply might want to consider providing a Velcro strip at the bottom edge of the cover and a strip for the VegTrug as this would be a bit easier

        Insect cover does a great job keeping the bugs out

        My problem with the screens is that they and the frame are not tall enough for the plants I am growing. My plants are thriving, hitting the top and bending over. A taller frame and screen would be much better.

        With this perfect fitting foldable for easy storage cover, I am ready to harvest my first salad greens and radishes with nights still dipping close to 32F. In a few weeks I will switch to the screen version to keep the insects out.
