Large Wooden Trough Planters On Legs

The Vegtrug is a raised vegetable trough planter that sits off the ground on legs and is completely portable. It is the easy way to have your own vegetable garden anywhere, from outdoors on patios, porches and balconies, to indoors in greenhouses, polytunnels or even in the house. In many ways the vegtrug is better than regular raised beds, it is a good deal taller and stands at a comfortable waist height. Vegetables are largely protected from slugs and snails by the height of the trough, to be completely slug free try wrapping copper strips around the legs. This will completely turn them around. The extra height also protects vulnerable vegetable seedlings from household pets. The timber used is sustainably sourced fir and is treated in vegetable gardening friendly stain to prevent rot. A membrane liner also comes with the vegtrug to offer a little extra protection. 

At almost 1 metre tall this really is a raised vegetable garden! The 'Vegtrug' raised garden takes the hard work out of vegetable growing. We absolutely love them! They are a perfect outside the back door for herbs and salad, when you need a few crunchy leaves or fresh aromatic herbs just pop out and grab a handful. its one of the tallest raised beds and is perfect for people with back problems and is even wheelchair accessible. You can even grow deeper rooted crops like parsnips, carrots and potatoes along the centre of the bed thanks to it's clever 'v' shape design.

The VegTrug has been designed to be easily built from the box and comes in 1m long versions as well to suit any garden or balcony. Purpose built polycover, micromesh and fleece covers are available with frames to get the most out of your vegtrug garden planter. They help dramatically lengthen the growing season as well as offering reliable protection from pests, weather and disease. The Vegtrug makes the ideal gift idea for the vegetable gardener. 

Wheelchair Accessible

Like our Vegi-Table planter, all the Vegtrugs 1m, 1.8m and aluminium models are wheelchair accessible. Always remember if you are working from a seated positiion to work sideways (over the arm rest), rather than to the front as this prevents accidental falling and less reaching is required.


We try and keep our delivery charges as low as possible, we only charge €3.95/£3.95 delivery per order. This applies to all our raised garden planters regardless of the size of the order.

I had seen one of the vegtrugs in a friends garden so already know what they looked like. Very pleased to have my own. Takes a little bit of time to put together but well worth it. Delighted with the result.

Found the online build video a great help, Electric screwdriver makes it an easy job, wouldn't advise trying to assemble without one. Looking forward to reaping the benefits with lots of fresh veg and herbs, Will definitely be getting a second one

We love our new Vegtrug! So easy to use. We love the fact that it's waist high. No bending down to look after the plants, so excellent for older people. definitely 5 star! Many thanks.

Just a note to say that my Vegtrug has arrived this morning and I am totally delighted! It took my husband 45 minutes to construct (including all the unpacking and placing in situ) with the aid of an electric screwdriver and a socket wrench. What a marvellous piece of kit. Thank you so much.

I'm very pleased with the veg trug and it's all set up ready to go when the temperature warms up. I found instructions on you tube to assemble. These were very useful and the trug went together very easily.

its a great product. Definitely one to buy if you have an issue with your back. Took around two hours to build with the help of my son and two bags of soil to fill but I look forward to planting some seeds in a few weeks. I bought the cover as well which was easily attached and hoepfully will protect it from excess rain.

I'm happy with my vegtrug but had been assured it was easy to put togethr well maybe for quickcrop but not for me. I had to get a neighbour to help in the end and used an electric screwdriver to assemble. Looked great finished but took nearly a full afternoon even though was tols would take an hour and a half! Very nice product but leave yourself plenty of time!

Asked By Ian

How many seedlings should I get to fill this?
Answered by Niall
on May 13th, 2019
Hi Ian A half tray of 42 plants is plenty however it does depend a bit on the mix you are looking to grow Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Frederike
on April 29th, 2019
What soil would you recommend?
Answered by Niall
on April 29th, 2019
Hi Frederike Our bulk bags of Vegetable soil mix is probably the best mix However there is 850 litres in a tonne bag of this and you only need half of this to fill a 1.8m trug. The other option if you can't find a home for the additional soil is to use standard Veg mix compost on our website and mix in 1 bag of Envirogrind 60 litre compost just to ensure you have plenty of nutrients in the soil Niall Quickcrop

I can only see covers that only cover the top not the frame. Can you please advise where they are on your web site? Also what type of varnish do you suggest for the trug Many thanks
Answered by Andrew
on November 04th, 2016
Hi Irene. Sorry i thought we had them up on the website but i have just checked and they are not there yet. I will have our IT guy put them up early next week as they are new to our stock but we have them now. On the varnish. Just clear varnish from any paint shop but to be honest you probably don't need it.
Asked By Irene
on November 03rd, 2016
Can you advise what I should use to keep the vegtrug in good condition as I have now had it for two years and it is starting to look a bit shabby
Answered by Andrew
on November 03rd, 2016
Hi Irene. We have covers that you can put on the unit for the winter which help a lot with weathering. Once it is properly dry over after being covered for the winter you can put a varnish on the outside to help keep it from weathering further. That said if you cover it during the winter it will easily last another 8/10 years even if it does look a little tired.
Asked By Tina
on February 21st, 2016
Hi, does the soil have to be changed every year? Thank you
Answered by Andrew
on February 22nd, 2016
A good question Tina. No is the simple answer. If you start with good vegetable soil mix you shouldn't need to add to it for about 3 years although because vegetables are hungry crops it is always an idea to add some well composted material to the top of the soil each winter. It also protects the soils nutrients from washing out of the Vegtrug.
Asked By Trevor Goodbody

Answered by Andrew
