What Herbs Grow Best in a Roof Garden?


We’re mostly growing drought-tolerant plants and grasses in rooftop container garden. I did sneak one spring of thyme into a pot just to see what would happen. So far it is still alive.

It seems like Mediterranean herbs could hack the heat and direct sunlight of a roof garden. They could also look beautiful and add an amazing fragrance. Does anyone have suggestions on what herbs we should try to grow on our Brooklyn roof?
