Full Crates

Our full sized veggie crates are made from new, non-treated, 25mm a-grade pine. Measuring 1.16m by 1.16m (0.73m in height), they provide approximately 1.5m2 of growing space, giving plenty of opportunity to grow and harvest your own vegetables and herbs.

We provide a number of options, from Veggie Crate only, to DIY packs (with all the ingredients to set it up yourself) or the Little Veggie Patch Co team can come and install and plant out on your behalf. We also offer ‘self watering’ wicking crate options for those that may struggle to find the time to water themselves, or simply want to make the growing process easier.

The care we take to line and reinforce these crates is the key to their longevity and you can expect more than 10 years of loyal service from your Veggie Crate.

All full sized veggie crate options can come with castors - given your space is hard and smooth - making them mobile. Netting that will keep out a number of seasonal pests is highly advisable.

Half Crates

Our half sized veggie crates are made from new, non-treated, 25mm a-grade pine. Measuring 1.16m by 0.58m (0.73m in height), they provide approximately 0.7m3 of growing space and are designed to give meaningful growing real estate in even smaller spaces. Perfectly suited to balconies, courtyards and narrow passage ways, where a larger veggie crate just isn’t possible.

Are the little veggie crates treated? The little veggie crate are NOT treated. They are constructed from non-treated pine, built to the food industry standard.

How long will the little veggie crate last? Up to 10 years. The plastic lining on the inside of the crate will protect the timber from premature deterioration. We also fit our crates with a styrofoam void former to keep the base of the crates dry and lessen the strain on the structure. We highly recommend you recycle the void former once you have done with your veggie crate.

What sort of access is required for crate installation? The crates are delivered empty and filled and planted on site, so we negotiate them in position on their sides – the crates are 72cm wide. A standard side access, wide enough to fit a wheelbarrow, is sufficient.

What typically gets planted out in the Planted Crate option? We plant what is seasonal, including a large selection of herbs. We are always happy to source your favourites as well.

Do you guys deliver interstate? We can deliver interstate to capital city warehouse depots (not WA or NT sorry), where you will then have to organise pick up. This is the most economical and reliable way.

Are you guys the original and the best? Yes, we are the original and the best!
