Enclosed and Raised Vegetable Gardens

Vegepod Container Gardens give you the best of both worlds and more. You get the size of a raised garden bed with all the benefits of container gardens. Plus you get all the features of the eco-climate covers that extend growing seasons and accelerate plant growth.

Garden maintenance is minimal and watering is only required during the early stages of plant growth. Vegepod Container Gardens are simply the easiest way to grow your own vegetables.

Wicking System

The Vegepod self-watering container garden utilises a wicking system. A wick is the soil or perlite that is in contact with the water in the reservoir. Soil uses a capillary action to draw the water upwards keeping the soil moist. A plants roots will locate this moisture hence watering from below.

Established plants can last weeks without watering and in cooler times your plants may not require water for months at a time.

It is important to water seeds and seedlings daily for a week or more. After that the reservoir will have enough water to keep the plant healthy. It is a good idea to reduce watering significantly once the plant is established. Over-watering can cause as much harm to your plants as under-watering.

Another major benefit of the Vegepod’s self-watering system if the ability to recycle the soil nutrients. Potting mix is packed full of important nutrients for your plants. In a traditional pot you(and nature) will wash these nutrients out of your soil within months. The Vegepods reservoir feeds these nutrients directly to your plants roots.

How Much to Water?

After you plants your seedlings give them a good soaking using the mist-spray (20 mins). This will wet the soil through and fill the reservoir.

All climates are different and may vary. But mostly for the next 7 to 10 days water with the mist spray for about 3 mins only. If it rains during this period then don’t water at all.

After 10 days your seedling’s roots will have located the necessary water source for survival and the reservoir will be full. Each plant differs on how much water it requires. Some plants like basil will send their roots into the reservoir itself. Hold right back on watering now – Base your watering on the season and weather. If it is winter and there is patchy rain don’t water at all. If it is mid summer and 30 degrees with no rain in sight then give them 3 minutes everyday.

You can be neglectful and still get tremendous growing results. We have seen Vegepods left for 6 weeks through January and have still been fine.

If you are going away for more than 2 weeks in summer it might be an idea to get a 24hr tap timer(around $50) and have it come on daily for 2 or 3 minutes.

Protection for your Vegies

  • Provides a micro-climate
  • Promotes rapid growth
  • Higher yields
  • Permeable to air and water
  • Hinged lid for full access to plants

The VegeCover is unique to the Vegepod and is simply the best way to protect vegies. No need for pesticides or wildlife deterrents anymore.

Providing a shade-rate of 17% it is ideal for keeping that harsh sun at bay and providing a superior growing environment.

And the only real way to put an end to those voracious night-time predators.
