I thought it was maybe time to report on the growth of the roof garden. No major purchases were done since last time, mainly due to the difficulty of getting something big scale without a car. But the existing plants are growing well. The Clematis start climbing up the lattice and the peach tree is now in full bloom.
I started growing several flowers and herbs from seeds (like this, we’ll have a kitchen garden!) and am also contemplating to give it a try with some vegetables. Until now, only the Zinnias and Snapdragons have germinated.
We bought several more small flowers from various gardeners and potted them into half-round pots made from coconut fiber which then go into wire baskets that hang from the lattice.
Our quest for garden furniture was unsuccessful so far, we only managed to get a camping grill. What is missing now (apart from more big pots and plants) is a garden table and chairs, an umbrella for the sun and deck chairs!
