Any pictures?
No where in northern areas there are houses big enough for roof top commercial gardening, certain places when the house is by the hill slope and roof at the level of hill, it may be used for domestic farming. Mostly the roof top is used for drying of food to be preserved. If you fly over the area in Sept. you will be surprised to see all roofs pink with drying apricots.
Sir, i dont have the pictures but i have seen the harvesting and upon asking the residents said they will sell these (onions) in the local market.. whole roof was cover with soil and you are right most houses were by the side of a hill or the roof was at the same level as of road passing by....

AoA all.

Question? Can I plant and grow CHIKOO in Islamabad in my back yard garden. It is a big backyard with plenty of sunshine.
