ROOFTOP GARDEN 2014-15
Welcome to all “Gardening Pakistan” members. As a hobby in my words gardening is a lot of hard work, but it is enjoyable work and a true labor of love. Each and every hour of your work will give rewards to you, your family and your fellows with many hours of enjoyment. Every year you got new inspiration to something new in next year and your desire becomes your plants and flowers will be a little larger and more beautiful and finally your goal of creating your own 'perfect garden'.
Main Task:
1. F1 Flowering species like Petunia, Antirrhinum Seeds. Again thanks to Gardening Pakistan especially Group Purchase Incharge “ Mr. Farhan Ahmad”.
2. Cactus Seeds
3. Grow Local Vegetables and Flowering Seeds in different pots.
4. Main focus on Imported Hybrid Seeds from Seed Germination to bloom.
5. Soil PH level as well as Water PH Level of plants.
6. Maintain Fertilizers and control Pest and Diseases of flowering as well as vegetables plants.

Last couple of weeks before starting Seed Germination.
Main focus of" Soil" as well as "Water" PH Level. This is the most important part for Seed Germination as well as growth of healthy plant.
I can use liquid Urea Dynamite that will prepare soil and maintain water PH level.
I am not promoting the company just to guide new Gardening Pakistan lovers. Here is guide line of this liquid which I would like to first upload image.

The next step to choose a “container” or “particular place” in your garden which have all the facilities of moderate light and proper air flow.
As instruction mentioned on Seed Packets Day light temperature will be 21-25C (70 to 77 F) for best germination.
I have three packets of Thompson & Morgan Seeds. So I decided to grow in a little container as well as make small bed for Seed Germination.

Nice Idea ...... but be careful if this sheet is under direct sunlight temperature will shoot way above required 25 in no time , even in mild winters these days.

I used to do solarization of pots in summer , i monitor them with temp instrument, it reaches above 60 C in summer.

Goodluck !

Thanks Izhar Sb and Syed Adnan Sb.
As Syed Adnan Sb wrote

I will choose the place which is not in direct sunlight. Only morning Sunlight starting from 9:00 AM t0 12:00 PM. 3 hours sunlight is moderate for Seeds Germination. It's also save from "Rain" too. Yesterday, night starts rain after 1:00 PM. So this tunnel can also saved unexpected rain or thundershower forecast.

Now-a-days most of Flowering and Vegetable Seedlings are transplanted into little pots. A few Seedlings of Thompson & Morgan seeds wait to transplant.
