    Thanks everyone! It's definitely great to be able to have a garden and greenhouses in NYC. It was a dream come true for me! Each year, I add a little more to the garden. It was difficult at first figuring out what plants would survive the winters in pots and which would not.

    Yeah, I can see Bobby Flay up there doing a cooking show using the fresh herbs. Very appealing garden, Lienluu! What a lovely place to relax in and enjoy the view.

    Great photos. How long did it take to fill up those green houses?

    WOW! Your grow areas are BEAUTIFUL, especially the sitting area amidst your roof garden, perfect! Congratulations! You are a trully gifted gardener! I've been trying to acclimate my plants to the harsh roof/balcony conditions for months, your plants look healthy like the've just been purchased. Well done! This place must look great in the evenings...

    Most of the plants stay outside in the winter without any problems. The greenhouses are heated in the winter so all the ones outside go back in for the winter!

    Amazing, and I complain about my section being too small to grow orchids!!!

    You have used the space so well, I have often thought I could never live in an apartment without my garden but you have certainly made it possible. :-)

    What a great place! I love the rooftop. I don't think I'd ever want to leave that space. I've always wanted to go to New York!
