Good, but mesh is disintegrating

Good product, however... it's been in full-sun for a year and a half and the plastic mesh is disintegrating into tiny little bits - where it rubs on the clip when opening & closing and around the hose inlet. This is very bad for the environment and for what I'm growing. It's basically useless & needs replacing.

Cover leaves 3-5mm gap letting in moths and caterpillars

The cover leaves a 3-5 mm gap letting in moths and caterpillars. This year has been especially bad for it. Had to resort to seal the gaps today! Otherwise great keeps birds and bigger animals off your crop.

Waste of money

Easy to put together,
Planted some seeds, they are very slowly growing, also planted seeds in the garden with cheap crappy soil not the premium potting mix I used in the vegepod,
I am harvesting from the garden and the vege pod has sprouted then stopped.
The photos I have attached were planted on the same day, the only thing growing is 1 silverbeet plant. The chives which were put in as seedlings have done nothing, the carrots have dove nothing, the beetroot has done nothing.

Would not recommend to anyone, waste of money Show details

False advertising

I am beyond disappointed with this self proclaimed family business with values.

Vegepod makes millions, yet fails to acknowledge or resolve design floors despite knowing about them for 4+ years. Instead they hide it and act as if noone else has this issue and customers are told it is their fault.

Vegepod does not "stop all pests" as advertised. As you can see in my photos, the thickness of the canopy corners and clips make the canopy sit 3mm above the base. Insets just walk in. This is a common issue.

The vegepod is not durable, lasting many years as advertised. My sides move and are loose before I have even planted. Another common issue. Vegepod wouldn't even acknowledge my concern. Show details

Would not buy it again

Lovely to start your own little gardening but 2 years later all the parts and shade were damaged by hot weather.
All the plastic parts and connections were made very cheap material.
The idea is good but I would not purchase it again… paid for lots of money and hoping to last little bit longer .
Not worth investing vegepod . Show details

Good product but poor quality plastic connectors

Similar to other reviewers, the plastic Frame connectors are poor quality

We have owned the Vegepod for a few years. Whilst the overall design is good the vegecover frame connectors are made of POOR quality material and is NOT durable. They have all now broken and I have had to order new kits. I would have expected better quality given it's price. Show details

Veggies growing twice as fast. Great Product!

We bought a medium sized vegepod few weeks ago in Perth WA and planted that day. The vegetables in the pod are thriving and are visibly bigger and healthier compared to the excess seedlings (that we planted in some adjacent raised garden tubs right beside each other). For example, the zucchini are 4-5 times as bigger in the vegepod than those we planted in an adjacent raised garden tub. See attached picture.

FYI, both sets of veggies have a wicking system and use the same soil mix. We we so surprised at the difference in growth and plant health that we just went back and purchased a second Vegepod. Show details ·  1

After sales service

I recently wrote a negative review. However it appears my issue “fell through th cracks”. Since then I have received excellent service once Vegepod were aware of my concerns. It’s only fair then that I negate my previous review. Thankyou. Show reply

The Best Product and Service I Have Ever Experienced

This is simply the very best product and service I have ever purchased online or in store. The staff at Vegepod followed up on replacement of the cover that was torn on delivery and the missing perlite immediately, the product was easy to assemble (even by a novice tool handler), and has started growing Peas. I am so massively impressed with them, that I intend on getting quite a few more. Simply FABULOUS. Show details ·  1

This is gonna be good

My Vegepod arrived today. Very fast delivery. Great courier service, no damage to any packaging.
Items immaculately packaged. Put it together myself, which is time consuming. Youtube assembly videos big help, funny too.I bought the large pod with stand. All items beautifully made, no parts missing, no alignment hassles. Looking forward to harvesting. Also bought 2 bags of Perlite. Show details ·  1

Just ordered my third

This has to be the best way to grow food. Nothing can stop you if you have a Vegepod. Literally kilograms of delicious fresh food. I just stand and graze in the garden. Low water consumption is an extra bonus. I’ll be saving for my fourth. Show details ·  1

Not bug proof

I’ve had my pod for about 6 weeks. I love my vegepod, I really do, everythigg be grows fantastically, but there’s a problem. When you close the canopy there’s a gap of about 2cm almost completely around. I’ve been battling caterpillars and other flying creatures who are stripping my crop… all my plants were from seeds so not brought in from shops etc… I’ve seen active moths in there in the evening. It’s a real shame, I thought this would be the answer to my bug problem in veggie patch. I give 4 stars as the concept is amazing and the wicking wells really encourage that fast growth. The canopy needs some work however to make it truly pest free Show details ·  3

Questions & Answers

Help I need some answers as to why my vege plants aren’t thriving in my vege pods. I’ve noticed lately that the overflow water smells stagnant. I changed the soil at the middle of last year and have never used perlite. Should I completely clean out especially the wicking wells. Look forward to hearing your solutions. Elly

Hi
My misters were working fine and now not at all. Nothing changed with the pod. It seemed to happen overnight. Any suggestions as it’s very frustrating?

As we now live in a retirement village, our large Vege Pod in too big for the place. Are we able to just have 2 half ones?

Yes thats absolutely possible! Best way is to email us at info@vegepod.com.au and tell us you want to convert your large into two mediums, and we will help you out with a conversion kit
