Good news from our rooftop garden. The plants and flowers seem to be taking to their new surroundings – seeds are sprouting and crops are growing. The garden is now irrigated, making watering less of a chore, and the slightly cooler weather has helped things find their feet rather than being scorched straight away!
Of note this week, all the salads, seeds and plug plants, are well under way; the pea shoots are starting to climb their canes; the blueberry bush has pretty little flowers already in bloom; and the first strawberry fruits are ready and waiting for a little sunshine to colour them.
If you’d like to join in and plant your own garden with some of the things we’re growing or even use our garden design, take a look at housetohome where you can download a plant list and a planting plan.
