Roof/Kitchen Gardening

Roof/Kitchen gardening is a passion for everyone now-a-days. Here is some information I gathered about Kitchen gardening from a recent training.


  •  For gardening we can use the grow bags, pots, containers etc., 
  • we need to grow medium weight of garden in the roof.
  • Then we need seed materials/plants, quality water irrigation system and drainage, Fertilizer.
  • While making the gardening the thing we should remember are sun, light and water.
  • Best time for watering is  9-10 in the morning , and  4-5 in the evening
Watering should be one time a day during winter. Water the plants twice a day during Summer. And don't put excess water than what is required for the tree.

For Composting use closed bins/tubs.
Take a bin add two times of soil, then dry leaves, then daily cut vegetable/fruit peels, then the fourth layer use curd for composting or Worms.
 Continue the same process till the bin fills to the 3/4th then cover it add water daily for composting. Open the lid for 30 minutes maximum a day.


  • Nutrition to the plants: Nitrogen, Phosphorous, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, Sulfur.
