Urban Edibles for rooftop gardens
Article on urban vegetable growing, in particular roof gardens.
Vegetables can be grown in small spaces - just choose your varieties carefully. Some of the best advice that I have read on growing your own is to grow food that you like and that tastes better than the supermarket. When starting out, don't be too ambitious: successfull crops will gives you a great confidence boost but failings in crops - which might be nothing to do with inexperience - can have a very negative effect on whether you are inspired to grow more.
Let's hope Monty Don is right when he says that grow your own is not a media fad and is here to last.
