Less than a year ago, I waxed lyrical about building two VegTrug that I purchased from a big hardware store locally.
They were easy to put together and have grown some great produce. Up until now I have been starting off most of my seedlings before transplanting them into the main garden beds.
That is of course before the liner started turning to powder and disintegrating. They are only 11 months old.
Direct sunlight, which you would think is kind of beneficial to plants, is not in turn, kind to the woven liner that is supplied with the VegTrug. As I don’t have the receipt any more I will not be able to ask for a new one from my supplier.
Here is the second one with a similar issue. I am going to have to dig all the soil out of both beds as they are currently unusable. Not happy.
I haven’t approached the parent company as yet, but will send through an explanatory email, politely describing my dilemma. They may have come across this issue before, and I may not be aware of a recall or some such issue. Or maybe they are simply not designed for our conditions here in Australia.
I will post an update once I have learned more.
