AOA dear Sami,

I hope this message finds you in best of your health. My dad and I started building a roof top garden. Though we are not professional but my dad and I do gardening for fun and relaxation. We learned a lot in recent days, thanks to nursery guys and internet.

We planted grapes, lemons, strawberry, tomato, okra (bhindi), eggplant (bangan), spanich, chukandar, moli and many more. And results are very good. We even had fruit from out rooftop grapes as well.

For calender you may refer to this link viewtopic.php?f=31&t=793. I am using the same calender.

As fr as the earth you need, I am not sure the climate from there! If you could post some pictures of your lawn that will be helpful. I am using Bhal from the canal. You may see the projects I have done on http://aqeelarshadsiddiqui.wordpress.com

Stay In touch!
Aqeel.

Yesterday I planted Okra (Bhindi) and Bitter Gourd (Ka-ray-la). Both from seeds not baby plants. I'll try to share photos as they come out! We are also planning for Cucumber as well but have small problem about place to plat them ...

What have you planted!?
