RE: new rooftop winter garden

You could try wintersowing. Go to the Winter Sowing forum here at G'web, or at You can grow plants over the spring and summer that will provide winter interest (i.e. ornamental grasses,sedums), and food/habitat (e.g. echinacea), for birds if you are interested in attracting them.
