Wow, what a few months we've had. Enough Said!
This week marks the 107th RHS Chelsea Flower Show and whilst the format of the show is somewhat different to previous years, how fabulous is it that we can access garden tours, Q&A sessions and education events courtesy of Virtual Chelsea.
We’re thrilled to announce Vegepod’s Vegebag was awarded the 2020 RHS Garden Product of the Year on Monday. The finalist line up this year was outstanding. Ensure you take a look at all the finalists in the category
Chair Judge Chris Harrop said: “The current lockdown has unleashed a wave of passion across the country for all things gardening and particularly for growing fruit and vegetables, and after detailed debate and inspired by the mood of the nation the judges are delighted to announce that the Vegebag by Vegepod is this year’s winner.”
We couldn’t agree more! Vegebags were invented to echo our mission of making growing your own easy and accessible for everyone, regardless of age, budget or gardening ability. Everyone can grow with a Vegebag!
Vegebags offer a convenient and budget friendly option for growing one or two vegetable plants at a time. Remember that time you planted mint in your garden and it took over your whole patch? Well, no more with isolated growing in a Vegebag.
Let’s take a look at some of the features of the award winning Vegebag.
Pest Free Growing
The Vegebag continues the tradition of Vegepod's iconic super fine mesh that helps with microclimate, pest, weather and weed protection! The zip-up cover means you're dramatically reducing your chances of weather and pest damage and providing ideal conditions inside for amazing growth rates.
The Vegebag holds a full foot of soil, just like the Vegepod, meaning you can plant a variety of edibles, including root vegetables and fruits including tomatoes, carrots (no carrot fly), aubergine, spuds etc.
Two Sizes - Small and Large
Small reaches up to a height of 65cm and width of 49cm. We recommend it for your leafy greens, herbs and containing the likes of eager mint.
Large is a height of 76cm and width of 65cm. We recommend it for your larger plants such as tomatoes, eggplants and broccoli.
Slightly different from the Vegepod, the Vegebag doesn't have wicking reservoirs in the base, but we have still catered for water flow by including drainage eyelets to prevent flooded soil.
Portable and easy to handle, the Vegebag has transport handles on either side and can be compacted down to help with transport and space-saving when not in use or needs to be moved to a sunnier spot in the garden.
You can find our Vegebags on our Shop page - £19.99 for a small and £29.99 for a large.
Voting opens today for the RHS Peoples Choice Award for Garden Product of the Year. If you love your Vegebag or Vegepod, please consider voting for us here.
