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.
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 stock these Vegtrugs in two different colours: Natural Timber, and Grey Wash. You can choose using the 'Colour' Tab above.
