When my husband and I lived in an apartment building, our neighbors had a beautiful rooftop garden that they tended to nearly year-round. We never got around to doing it when we lived there, but I have always wanted to learn more about rooftop gardens and how to go about starting one. You see them on home and garden shows on TV and they are usually on condo or apartment buildings. Of course, that doesn’t mean that you couldn’t have one on your house rooftop, or on a balcony/upper deck if you don’t have a yard, or don’t have room for a garden in your yard.

I found the following video on the Gardenieres website that explains more about rooftop gardens. In the video, Pamela Reed, the Northeast Gardeniere, gives a lot of tips including how to deal with wind gusts and water evaporating due to heat. Check it out:
Miracle-Gro® Potting Mix
A product I would definitely use in a rooftop garden is Miracle-Gro® Potting Mix. It is ideal for all kinds of container or potted plants so it is perfect for rooftop gardens. It feeds plants for up to 6 months so it should have no problem helping your garden produce throughout the fall.
