Vegepod welcomed by UK gardeners with solution they’ve been waiting for

In its first year of trading, Vegepod UK has been inundated by customer demand for its innovative raised garden beds.

The UK subsidiary of the incredibly popular Australian company was launched at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show last year and has since experienced substantial growth, which the owners of the company attribute to the product delivering exactly what UK gardeners are seeking.

Neil Urry, head of UK sales and operations for Vegepod, commented: “Our focus since launching has been to get the products in front of people, which has seen us exhibit at 16 shows this year so far, with another 17 lined up before the end of the year. It’s been a busy summer but we’re loving meeting people and getting their feedback. We’re finding that UK gardeners like Vegepod because it offers three key solutions that people are looking for – containment gardening with water reservoir, pest protection  and accessibility. You can simply sow the plants, then once they are established, leave them and reap the benefits without even having to tend to the crops.”

Vegepods are self contained raised garden beds with a commercial grade canopy that grants full protection from the elements and pests, allowing plants to be protected all year round. The Vegepod allows for truly organic gardening, and the canopy creates a microclimate that generates amazing results and accelerates plant growth to give a bumper crops in no time!

The worries of watering are removed too with the Vegepod self-watering wicking system, combined with an overflow hole, which grants optimum watering so Vegepods can be left unattended. There is even an irrigation system with  mist spray to ensure every aspect of self watering is covered. You can leave your crops whilst on holidays and return to a full harvest. No more plants dying whilst on holidays in summer!

The popularity for Grow Your Own gardening and plant-based living doesn’t seem to be slowing down and Vegepod allows everyone to get involved with vegetable growing. The trolley makes it easy to move, and the height makes it accessible for all, whilst also being great for those short of space but desperate to grow – particularly with gardens getting smaller and waiting lists for allotments getting bigger and now having more than 90,000 names on!

Vegepod UK has been launched by husband and wife team Neil and Alex who moved to Surrey from Australia in spring 2018 to extend the huge popularity of Vegepod in Australia to the UK.
