My window boxes are 3ft 7in. long by 9 1/2 in. deep. I used a variety of flowers such as vicavine, petunias, geraniums and other assorted colorful annuals from my local nursery. I have been putting together window boxes for 2 years with my dad (my dad says I have a green thumb). I enjoy putting the window boxes together and seeing them grow and change, I like the creativity of being able to plant them the way I would like to.
This white hay rack holds huge, lush ferns. Against the backdrop of the window with the board and batten shutters it gives the window a pop of color!
My window box is fiberglass and was purchase online. The window box measures 48′ long , 10′ wide and and is 11″ deep. I try different plantings every year. I like to see how the colors and the textures of the plants blends.
I love my Kitchen window box. My metal windowbox was purchased several years ago from Windowbox.com. I have planted sweet potato vine, pink gerbera daisies, pink and green coleus. Caladiums, creeping jenny, and trailing succulents. It is so beautiful and makes me feel good every time i drive into my driveway or look out my window.
My window boxes are my favorite hobby. I have decorated my deck railing with wrought iron window boxes to create a garden oasis. I love planting pansies in the fall for a splash of color. I use varigated plants for contrast. I live in North Carolina.
I planted 4 of these window boxes in the front of the Main Dining Hall at a Summer Camp. All are identical with Dragon wing begonias, Boston fern, Bridal Veil, and Monkey Flowers. There are 2 4 foot boxes on each window that I purchased through Grandin Road.
