1 Metre Vegtrug Trough Planter


In a nutshell....

Vegtrug trough planters have a v shaped design so you can grow a wider range of vegetable. A vegtrug is both a raised bed on legs and stylish piece of garden furniture. Click Specification below for further detail. Size: 100cm L x 80cm H x 76cm W. Available in 2 colours: Natural Timber, and Grey Wash, You can choose below.


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.

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.

Excellent. Easy to put together. Easy to use. When I'm too old to get down to the ground to garden, I'll have three more and rotate crops at table height.

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!

Answered by Andrew
on May 19th, 2020
Hi David. I am afraid we are currently out of stock of the 1.8m version (May 2020), they are almost impossible to get anywhere. I expect we will have them back in mid June.
Asked By Derval
on May 10th, 2020
What vegetables would you suggest for a beginner? Our kids would like us to try carrots and then we’re open to suggestions. Is it too late in the season to get started now? Many thanks Derval
Answered by Niall
on May 10th, 2020
Hi Derval Certainly not to late. Actually May is probably one of the best months to start. Carrots up the centre are a good idea. Another couple of crops if you like them that are easy and give a great amount of crop back are Beetroot, Kale, Spinach, Chard, Radishes and any of the salads Niall Quickcrop
on April 20th, 2020
Do you know when the 1m vegtrug will be available? Thx Sarah
Answered by Niall

Asked By Rose
on October 05th, 2019
Hi there, I’m interested in starting to grow veg. I’ve done a little this year but space is limited. For a two person household , I’m not sure what size is useful. I’d do potatoes in a bag...although that hasn’t always worked. What size would you suggest ? I think I’d be interested in beets, chard, salad, and anything else that’s easy.
Answered by Niall
on October 08th, 2019
Hi Rose The 1m vegtrug is perfect for growing a small amount of Herbs or salads however if you want any decent amount of Veg like Beetroot, salads chard etc i would recommend the 1.8m Trug and it is a lot better value as well for the growing space you get. Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Moira
on June 07th, 2019
Hi you say that the wood does not need to be treated as it will last approx 10:years but on the instruction leaflet it says to treat the wood every year. Hope you can clarify. Thanks
Answered by Niall
on June 07th, 2019
Hi Moira The wood is pressure treated at time of manufacture which will give it long life in the garden. The manufacturer is obviously covering themselves to add to the length of life of the product. Certainly i wouldn't bother doing anything year one but if you want to oil the wood each winter it will give it extra life Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Lucy Hyde-Thomson
on April 04th, 2019
What depth of soil is there at the sides and in the middle?
Answered by Niall
on April 05th, 2019
Hi Lucy They are 30cm deep at the sides and 50cm in the centre. Plenty of depth up the centre to grow even carrots or potatoes and everywhere else you can grow any other crop Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Lucy
on April 07th, 2018
Hi, I would like to order the 1m veg trug for growing vegetables. What compost and how much of it would I need for this?
Answered by Andrew
on April 09th, 2018
Hi Lucy You will need 5 x 50 litre bags to fill the Vegtrug 1m. I would advise using 4 x GroSure multipurpose compost and 1 x Envirogrind soil improver.
Asked By Gillian Bristow
on August 13th, 2017
At the end of the season is it necessary to change the compost in my veg true, or could I just add home made compost, or maybe just remove top 6 inches? I have no where to dispose of spent compost. Having amazing success with it, by the way.
Answered by Andrew
on August 14th, 2017
Hi Gillian. No need to take out or replace the soil in the unit each year. You will find the soil decreasing as the year goes on due to the nutrients being removed by the plants. Each winter just top up the Vegtrug with your new compost or buy in some good nutrient rich compost to add to the top of the bed. Envirogrind is particularly good for this purpose.

Answered by Andrew

You can indeed. The website has 1m frames and covers as well as the units. Just put the word Vegtrug in the search bar and it will pull up all the options available.
Asked By Joanne Bream
on September 20th, 2016
I intend to buy the coir compost for my vegtrug should I buy 4 packs or is it best/ ok to mix with regular compost?
Answered by Andrew
on September 20th, 2016
Hi Joanne. The coir compost is an excellent way of filling the beds to grow in however it is sterile so you will need to add some strong nutrient rich compost with it or alternatively Seaweed/Chicken manure pellets. Our Seafeed product is excellent for this
Asked By William
on June 12th, 2016
How do they drain
Answered by Andrew
on June 13th, 2016
Good question William. The come with a liner and then the base has slats with 3mm gaps running along them. This allows the water to drain out and not take any soil with it.
Asked By Sarah
on May 16th, 2016
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
on May 16th, 2016
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
on May 16th, 2016
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
Asked By Stella
on May 06th, 2016
Can you tell me if the wood is pressure treated please? I know you say 'stained', but that's more to do with the colour than the anti-rot treatment!
Answered by Andrew
on May 10th, 2016
Hi Stella. A very good question. The wood is indeed pressure treated and as a result will comfortably last in the British and Irish climate for 10/12 years.
Asked By Andy Levitt
on March 13th, 2016
How frequently will the planter need to be treated..? Thanks Andy Levitt
Answered by Andrew
on March 14th, 2016
Thank you for your question Andy. I have one 8 years in my garden and i have never had to treat it. They come pre-treated so they don't really need to ever be treated again.
