What’s Plants On Deck?

It’s my hope that this site will provide a space for city gardeners to share successes, mourn failures and most of all, exchange ideas. Comments? Suggestions? Send ‘em my way — comments are always welcome or you can email me at plantsondeck at gmail.com.

There are plenty of resources out there for urban gardeners, but you have to seriously search for reliable, tested information. Growing tired of weeding through pages and pages of text only to discover a paragraph on container gardening, this gardener decided to give blogging a shot. And you’ll find, I hope, lots of information and trial-and-error gardening tips.

July 2010 Plants on Deck

Plants on Deck, July 2010

Until 2015, Plants On Deck was a 10×10 bright blue deck built atop ourĀ little row home’s roof in South Philadelphia. After moving to PennsportĀ in 2003 my lovely husband and wonderful father built my elevated yard, knowing that I couldn’t live in a world without dirt. Two years later they installed a pulley system so water could be hauled up more efficiently and safely.

After 19 great years in the City of Brotherly Love, POD’s looking forward to putting down roots in East Nashville. Hello, Music City.
