Planting Flowers in a Window Box to Brighten Your Daily View
Texas – Window boxes add instant curb appeal, brightening up the exterior of your home with blooms and greenery. Whether you’re an urban dweller with limited garden space or a suburbanite looking to liven up your facade, consider filling a few window boxes with a selection of these plants, whose short heights and interesting textures bring beauty and drama to containers.
- Flowering Bulbs – Often overlooked for window boxes are foolproof flowering bulbs. Whether you do a fall planting of miniature daffodils, snowdrops, or hyacinths for springtime bloom, or you do a late-spring planting of lilies, alliums, or dwarf gladiolus for summertime bloom, be sure to tuck a few bulbs and corms into your window boxes for added impact.
- Vegetables and Herbs – If you’ve got an accessible location, try planting edibles. Plant herbs like sage, chives, thyme, and mint. Just open the kitchen window when you need some fresh herbs! Cherry tomatoes, lettuce, and kale mixed with marigolds will do nicely in a window box. Like flowers, they will need water every couple of days and fertilizer every two weeks.
