Small VegTrug is made using sustainable timber that will last for many years. It is delivered as flat pack but it is very easy to assemble and the purpose built, fitted membrane liner protects the timber. A Vegtrug uses sustainably grown cedar.

The Vegtrug is at an easy working height

The top of a Vegtrug is at waist height. This makes tending the vegetables much easier for disabled gardeners and other people who have difficulty bending. Its wheelchair friendly because its at wheelchair height. No more bending or kneeling either. Another advantage, no slugs. I suggest you use John Innes No 3 compost for good growing results and you will need about 210 litres of soil. Maybe add a few worms from the garden, so why not try to turn it into a little ecosystem.
