Slightly Strawberry Looks Simply Sickly


We planted our pink and green container last week. While the white verbena is flourishing, the two Anisodontea Slightly Strawberry plants look sick. Leaves are curling and turning yellow. Any advice?

Patio Furniture Now On Sale


We bought this patio table and chairs from Crate & Barrel early this spring. We wanted something sturdy since our rooftop space is shared by everyone who lives in the building. We also wanted to find sturdy chairs that would stack for storage in the winter. We also needed an umbrella that could stand up to the wind.

Here’s what we picked:

All of these items are now on sale! So if your roof garden still needs furniture, this is a great time to order. We liked this patio table because the tiles cut into the top give it some personality.

Don’t forget to ask them how long it will take to deliver to you. Also, remember that delivery all the way up to your rooftop could cost extra. Many retailers charge an extra fee per box, per flight of stairs.

Rain, Rain, Go Away!

How long has it been raining for now? A week? A month? Looks like more rain is coming our way this weekend and into next week.


Enough already. I’m not sure how much more of it our fledgling plants can take. While the herbs and the beach grass don’t seen to mind the stormy weather,  the sedum is jumping out of its pot trying to out run the rain.


How’s your garden holding up? Should we bring some of our containers inside to dry off?
