Rooftop veggies tend to be smaller, microgreens and hot peppers become a focus. It’s hotter on the roof, which is wonderful for growing sun-loving plants such as tomatoes and eggplants. On the flip side, added heat means more watering, and the need to establish sustainable watering systems such as rainwater catchment and drip irrigation. Pests and soil diseases aren’t much of a problem on rooftops but high winds can be devastating to tall plants, so trellises and supports must be extra secure.

Barbed Wire Garden Trellis (don't know about the barbed wire part, but love the spider wed design for the trellis)
Geopot was converted into a sub-irrigated planter (SIP) with a square trellis placed around the exterior of the bag. Worked very well. Johanne Daoust's Roof-top vegetable garden. 2012.
