Love the Vegepod!
I bought 2 small pods and trolleys in the hopes of beating furry creatures at their own game and getting to eat my veg before them for once! I’m not good with paper instructions but found the videos on the website so easy, I built both pods myself in a snap! Someone with bigger muscles built the trolleys
Some tips not seen elsewhere.
We're very impressed with this system so far. My wife and I assembled our large Vegepod yesterday. Make sure when laying the beds (four in the large version) into the base that the drain holes are all to what will be the back of the assembled unit. Plastic tubing is inserted into these holes so that the excess liquid (which contains a lot of leached fertiliser!) can be collected and recycled. Soften the end of the tubing with hot water to make it easier to push into the holes. I am going to investigate joining the four tubes together so that on...ly one container is needed to catch the water. Put most of the clips that hold the lid to the back to act as hinges. You only need two at the front as clasps to hold the front of the lid down in high wind. Only fill with growing medium when you are satisfied it is all fully assembled and level on a firm, strong base. We tilted ours to the back very slightly to encourage drainage to the outlet holes that should be at the back of the unit. (Not a big issue, I think.)
A great present from my husband
While working at the Ekka (Queensland show) last year my husband asked me to come and look at the Vegepod. He bought it for my birthday.
It reminded my again when I set up our stand again this year I passed the Vegepod stand up how good mine is. I have never been able to sussessfully grow herbs , I do now with Vegepod. It has been the best present. I have no problems with bugs and best of all no bending. I have always wanted to use fresh herbs in my meals. Thanks Vegepod a great product and well made and thought out.
Best way to successfully grow
I have successfully grown many foods in my vegepod where I’d previously failed in garden beds... Awesome product that made this non gardener into happy gardener. My cauliflower is magnificent, my spinach abundant, my coriander and much more so easy to grow. I bought a medium first, followed by a large soon after, and will be buying more soon. Wonderful invention that removes the obstacles to gardening, couldn’t be happier
It's a really great gardening system, even North of 60!
We bought 6 Vegepods in the spring, and we've set them up on our rooftop terrace here in Whitehorse. We took great pains to set them on the watering system, and with a few hiccups along the way, we managed to get them planted by the time it was warm enough for our plants. I wish I could post a photo so that you could see, but we planted on June 14th, and the photo I would like to include is from July 3rd. We are very happy so far. The proof of the pudding will come when we have to store them for the winter, and take them out again next spring, as to their durability. Winters can be pretty nasty on steel and plastic. Will keep you posted.
Follow-up review. Love it!
I just love this Vegepod, I planted seeds on Saturday and in just 2 days later the seeds have sprouted already, I also planted other herbs and they have nearly doubled in size. My cousin did not like or want to garden because of the problems with her back and knees but to my surprise she participated in the planting and also has expressed how much she likes it.
Some issues, but love it overall
Everything so far has been great. I got tons of germinating seedlings that have been growing extremely well. The only problem I've had is the tubing connected to the misters doesn't stay connected. The plastic clamps provided don't do very much unfortunately. Often times I've gone inside after turning on the hose to here a pop and notice water coming out of the tubing destroying my carrots. I think it would be cool if you could include adjustable misters so me could increase or decrease their flow.
All in all, after getting some metal hose clamps, it works amazing and I can't wait to enjoy home grown vegetables.
We have been eating kale, greens and herbs since day 24, which was a month ago...
Purchased and assembled 3 large vegepods side by side, on the custom stands. They are easy to assemble, just take a little time. The 3 large units took 50 bags of organic raised bed soil, cow manure and perlite. Seeds germinated in as little 4 days. In south and central Florida, gardens are very difficult due to all of the pests and insects...a lot of pesticides are required if you expect any kind of harvest. These vegepods are great!!! No pests of any kind...I water once a day lightly, using rain water from my barrels. Fertilize with liquid kelp concentrated fertilizer, 4 oz to 2.5 gallons rain water, once every 10 - 14 days..... I wish I could post some pictures...you can see updates on
Best service ever
Purchased a large Vegepod & Cover, very pleased with it, during a heavy storm the cover blew off & damaged it. No fault of the cover as the wind was blowing limbs off trees, so rang to buy spare bits, fully ready to pay,Vegepod sent the spares, plus extras for only the cost of postage! Best service ever!
A awesome family way to grow healthy home grown veggies
After many years of growing veggies using many different methods,some successful,some not,we discovered the Vegepod around three years ago.In our trials and errors we learnt that our soil quality , ph factor for each crop,and feeding of vigorous veggies at various stages,important.We also learnt that different veggies were compatible when grown others not.To reduce bugs we have planted plants that help reduce root nematodes, plants that deter bugs via scents/masks they omit,and placed false white butter flies around the pod.We still have to spr...ay quality horticulture oils and dipel from time to time.We do not use the bug cover as our combinations of tall(1.5m),medium(1m) and small veggies,herbs does not fit the cover dimensions. We did use it the first year growing just ice berg lettuce,which was good.The Vegepod is great to have the bug cover on to germinated our veggies seeds.We use a system of recyling our kitchen green waste that leeches into the veggie soil,activating earthworm activity.Bearing in mind we only use rain water from tanks on our veggies via a drip system,this does not discourage the earthworms.We are about to take out our spring /summer crops,sweeten the soil and plant winter crops that naturally rejuvenate the spent soils.Overall a great product giving us heaps of healthy homegrown veggies, that is now a family fun thing to do,one family member has bought their own,and also had a great experience.Its great brings our family together on a common interest,thats really good.
Perfect buy. We love it
We bought the bigger sized vegepod at the Flower Show in Melbourne about 3 years ago. It was an impulse buy, but we have not regretted it.
We love it. The veggies grow beautifully in it. A success every time. Well worth the money we invested in it. We have had friends and family who were so surprised to see the results we were getting.
About three weeks ago we had a servere weather event, i had a pallet leaning on my fence which fell onto one of the two large vege pods..crushing the hood, i have to say im extremly impressed with the service... well done guys/gals... one great product.... so cool its australian made.
I have 9 vege pods the best thing we have brought and about to buy 2 more in the new year it Keeps the cats and dogs out of the veges. My only problem 2 have broken and I need spare parts are they available. Could you please let me know.
Farmer's wife buys. Farmer laughs, then Farmer's wife has the last laugh
I have been gardening from a young child in a self sufficient family. The only food we bought was day old bread. My grandparents were also largely dependant on growing their own food, I have known how to grow food, but in more recent years it has delivered increasing trials for decreasing benefit. My extended family and I have challenged each other with new varying methods of growing greens especially. Veggie pod wins with the other competition methods all blown away. It is a great product. However I feel there are improvements that could be ma...de. An understanding of soil and soil microbial life is just as important and perhaps your company could include some education in living soil and nutrient provisions for the food that people desire to grow. We are farmers, the soil is the health both visable and nutriental of the plant. It is a great product, it is a good container and system but the dirt is the medium in which it all grows. I have a large, I planted it 2nd Dec. in 18 days after waterng it for a total of 10 minutes I have an harvest which I cannot contain. Literally. I will email vegepod with my improvement suggestions?
Great product, easy assembly and brilliant customer service to boot!
We purchased a 1m x 1m Vegepod with a stand on wheels.
Easy assembly and with the wheels, I can push it around the deck to get the get the best sun / rain / shade / shelter.
Upon assembly, one tiny part missing. Vegepod sent it to me quickly and all is good.
Cannot wait to see the garden grow!
Absolute Legends !
Questions & Answers
Can I turn a large vegepod into 2 x medium vegepods?
How many bags does it take to fill a large vegepod?
Not sure that I am qualified to answer this. In my limited experience each vegepod comes with its own accessories including cover which cannot be divided to make two. I used a lot of soil (did not count the bags). Overall it’s an expensive exercise hope it’s worth it in the long run.
Live in Canada what do people do in winter with the pod?
Is the cover for a vegepod temperature sensitive. I am finding the cover hard to install at 16 C. Does it become more pliable and stretch at higher temperatures?
