The VegTrug Patio Garden Frame & Greenhouse Cover creates a protected microclimate for plants in your VegTrug. You can start planting earlier in spring and extend the growing season later into fall for an even bigger and better harvest. The easy-to-install, 21"-high steel frame installs in minutes with convenient push-fit connectors, and the reinforced polyethylene greenhouse cover has heavy-duty stitching and zippers. The cover slips snugly over the frame and attaches with strong VELCRO® brand tabs. Zips open for ventilation and easy access to crops.
Note: The frame from the VegTrug Patio Garden Frame & Greenhouse Cover (#40-362) is required for the following additional covers.
Once the weather warms up, you can replace the greenhouse cover with the VegTrug Insect Cover, sold separately. The polyethylene micro-mesh cover protects plants from insects, birds, harsh winds and hungry deer. To install, simply remove the greenhouse cover from the frame, and then install the insect cover in its place. Attaches with strong VELCRO® brand tabs. Zips open for ventilation and easy access to crops.
For extra frost protection, use the VegTrug Frost Cover, sold separately. Made from nonwoven polypropylene, it protects plants from cold temperatures, wind and frost, allowing you to extend the growing season earlier in spring and later into fall. To install, simply remove the greenhouse cover from the frame, and then install the frost cover in its place. Attaches with strong VELCRO® brand tabs. Zippers allow easy access to plants.
Hot summer sun can burn tender seedlings and make cool-season crops like lettuce turn bitter. The UV-stabilized polyethylene VegTrug Shade Cover, sold separately, cuts summer sun by 50%. It covers the top of the VegTrug and extends 10" down the sides. This leaves the lower sides open so air can circulate freely around plants. To install, simply remove the greenhouse cover from the frame, and then install the shade cover in its place, securing it with the VELCRO® brand tabs.
