Rooftop Gardening: Take II


I learnt from the mistakes of my first attempt at planting my seeds by doing the following:




- I planted all my seeds indoors where the temperature is more warmer which will help the seeds to germinate. I bought a special seeding pot for my main vegetables on this.

- I kept the soil moist for the first 2 weeks of the germination process



- When planting the seeds I only planted at the tip of the soil (originally I planted a lot deeper)


Tomatoes & Peppers

Lettuce seeds sprout after just 5 days 


As you can see the results are a lot better. The next step will be to move the seedlings out to the garden.

  1. I make newspaper tubes of soil & plant seeds in that. When you are ready to transplant you can bury the whole lot & not risk damagiing the fragile roots of the new plant. The newspaper will disintegrate over time & become part of the soil. You can buy seed pots that do the same thing.
