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!

I have assembled my planter and put in the Coir and it looks fab. Can I plant runner beans in this ? Also, do I need to add any worms to help keep the Coir aerated ?
Answered by Niall
on April 23rd, 2019
Hi Lesley You can of course plant Runner Beans in the coir as it has nutrients added to it. You can add worms however the coir is sufficiently loose that it doesn't need them Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Tom

how many strawberry plants can i plant in this vegtrug? when planting these close together would 50 be too much?
Answered by Niall
on August 14th, 2018
Hi Tom Yes 50 would be to much. If you plant Strawberries to close they will actually produce less fruit for the area. The maximum i would plant is 18. So 1 on each side about 4 inches in and then one in the centre. These would then be spaced every foot along the unit giving 18 in total. Even at that this will be a little tight but should work Regards Niall Quickcrop

How much compost do I need to buy?
Answered by Andrew
on May 23rd, 2017
Hi Libby. It takes 420 litres of compost to fill the 1.8m Vegtrug or in day to day terms roughly 7 standard garden centre bags of 60litre compost
Asked By Mary R
on March 18th, 2017
Does this trig come fully assembled.
Answered by Andrew
on March 20th, 2017
Hi Mary R. The Vegtrug comes in a kit from and needs to assembled on site. The construction is not difficult and usually takes about an hour. You will need an adjustable spanner and a philips head screw driver.
Asked By Anne Marie
on June 04th, 2016
Can you just fill it with compost from B&Q or do you need top soil in it?
Answered by Andrew
on June 08th, 2016
Hi Anne Marie. You can fill it with standard Vegetable soil mix which you will get in any good garden centre. Vegetables need a lot of nutrients to grow well so the more compost in the mix the better.
Asked By Marilyn
on October 11th, 2015
How do you keep the trig from getting waterlogged, is there some sort of drainage system in it?
Answered by Andrew
on October 12th, 2015
Hi Marilyn. The planks in the base of the Vegtrug have small gaps between then allowing water to drain out. The vegtrug is also fitted with a semi-permeable liner which holds the soil in but allows excess water to drain out. I hop[e this helps. Andrew

Yes Penny they do come with a liner
