Vegetable Trough Planters

The Vegtrug is the raised vegetable trough planter that is the perfect blend of raised bed and garden furniture. 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. It is a completely portable vegetable planter on legs that has been specially designed for vegetable gardening. The Vegtrug has many advantages over regular raised beds, it is a good deal taller and stands at a comfortable waist height. The extra height helps protect vulnerable vegetable seedlings from slugs & snails, low flying pests like the carrot fly and fouling by household pets. The main body of the trug completely contains all the soil so you have more control over it, good healthy soil is the foundation of and most important part of any vegetable garden. 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 trug to offer a little extra protection. 


At almost 1 metre tall this really is a raised garden bed! 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. The V shaped bed sits on legs and is  one of the tallest raised beds, it 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 1.8m long versions as well to suit any garden needs. It is delivered in one boxed flatpack kit and only takes about 15 to 20 minutes to asemble, detailed instructions and all required fixings are included in the box. 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. Once assembled, the Vegtrug has a natural timber finish, this helps it easily fit in with any garden design type. 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.

Delivery
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.

The 1 meter vegtrug is a nifty little planter, It comes in a neat box and everything you need is inside. I have mine by the back porch and have ordered a larger one. Cant beat that 2.95 delivery rate thanks quickcrop from a repeat customer.

I bought the 1m veg trug for my classroom. I find it fantastic for the children as it is a perfect height for them, it is sturdy and we can keep it inside where they can watch their vegetables grow daily! From a teacher who is extremely happy with her purchase! I'd recommend it to anyone!

Andrew, Am I correct in assuming the liner is porous to enable any excess water to drain? I need to know because it has bearing upon where I put the bed. Thank you for answering my questions.
Answered by Andrew

Hi Sarah. Yes, you are correct, the liner is semi permeable and allows moisture to drain through it.
Asked By Sarah
on May 16th, 2016
How deep is the deepest part? Also, is it watertight or does it drain from between the boards? Thank you.
Answered by Andrew

Hi Sarah. The Vegtrug does drain between the boards but has a liner supplied to prevent any soil or compost particles escaping. The deepest part is 40cm deep. I hope this helps. Andrew
