Raised Vegetable Gardens
Vegepod Raised Garden Bed Kits give you the best of both worlds and more. You get the size of a raised garden bed with all the benefits of container gardening. Not only that, you also get the benefit of an Raised Garden Bed Cover that extends growing seasons and accelerates plant growth.
Garden maintenance is minimal and watering is only required during the early stages of plant growth. Vegepod Raised Garden Bed Kits are simply the easiest way to grow your own vegetables.
The quality of your soil is paramount to growing success. While looking after soil in contact with the ground can mean a lot of time and effort, Vegepod is contained, meaning your soil is secure and you know what’s in it
Container gardening means you never have to worry about soil contamination again. While lead and chemicals can be found in your existing, in-ground soil, container gardening ensures you can monitor what your soil is exposed to.
Great for renters, if you need to move house just empty out your portable raised vegetable garden and pack it on a truck. You can also place the container gardens on castor wheels for moving the Vegepod around.
Vegepod raised garden beds require less than half the potting mix required for a corrugated steel bed or raised timber bed of the same dimensions. Bagged potting mix will be easy to transport and easy to pour in.

Protection For Your Vegies
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.
An advanced greenhouse material made specifically for Vegepods it allows air and water to penetrate. Unlike plastic covers that will cook your veggies on a hot day the VegeCover will protect from harsh heat.
Are you sick of seeing those holes in your leaves from the grubs. Green grubs seem to eat more leafy greens than most children. Stop the moths and butterflies to avoid these issues!
The never-ending bane of veggie growers in all capital cities the world over – wildlife is fighting back for our invasion of their space by eating our veggies the very night before we intended picking them.
To make life even easier running along the top of the VegeCover is a mist-spray watering system. Just plug into a standard hose fitting and you are away. You can even attach a timer to your tap to water on extended vacations.

Mist-Spray Watering System
The Vegepod is a self-watering garden bed, meaning it utilises a wicking system. The wick is the soil or perlite that is in contact with the water in the reservoir at the base of the garden bad. Soil uses a capillary action to draw the water upwards keeping the soil moist. A plant's 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.
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.
