The roof garden has been such a success that Ben is going to improve on it for next year. Our garden faces east, and although we do get some lovely morning sun flooding in, we really need south or west facing to get more sunshine. However the roof garden is baked in lovely sunshine not shaded by other houses or apple trees and the like, so the tomatoes have been very happy up there, and a little harder for the slugs to get at! Stanley has been enjoying the garden too. Helping to plant seeds and weed etc. I think next year he will really love it, when he starts to understand what he planted a few weeks ago has now popped up, and will soon turn into food for him! Roll on next Summer...
