In stock now for Fast Delivery
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.
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.
