Glorious! Growing Morning Glories on a Roof Garden

Check out M & P’s stunning wall of morning glories. Last spring, they built their own trellis and trained the vines to grow up a roof garden wall covered with rust stains.

Here’s the same wall earlier in the season:

This is a great example of turning a challenge in your city garden space into a feature. The wall gives these vines some shelter from wind and full day sun.

For more pics of this Jersey City garden, check out my post from last summer. If you’re growing vines on your roof garden, please let me know and send some photos if you can!

  1. That is amazing. I’m so glad I found your blog on AT, I have a flat rubber roof that I’m trying to use for a garden due to our small city lot. I love rooftop inspiration!

      Sara, thanks for your note. I’m really glad you found my blog. Do you have photos of your roof? It would be fun to post it and see what advice readers might have for you.
