Herb Garden Window Box

Herb garden window box – A flower box (sometimes called a window box, window flower box, or box planter) is box that is generally placed outside and used for showing live plants such as flowers, herbs or other edible plants. It’s frequently used by apartment-dwellers on higher floors, which don’t otherwise have access to a garden or place to grow their plants. Easy access to your miniature garden is very possible with a window flower box installed in your window.

There are a lot of materials that can be used to make a flower window box. Several of which are timber, brick, metal, fiberglass, vinyl, and cellular PVC. These can be used to create a window but wood is a preferred classical substance amongst all. A typical wooden box will last at least 3-5 years but with paining and maintenance, it might even go as far as 10-15 years. For areas where insect infestation is widespread, it would be better to use Fiberglass – it is known to be lightweight and insect proof. Lastly, for those avoiding rot or siding damage, Vinyl and mobile PVC would be the ideal choice. It is made of plastic which are completely rot proof.

Window boxes can be installed below a window and supported by brackets thus the name window box. On another note – a flower box can be used to line decks, patios, porches, steps, and sidewalks and they can even be hung from railings. A flower window box is one of the most common types of flower boxes; it’s a magical feature for any home when matched with a fantastic selection of flowers to plant. Larger boxes about 10-12″ in height may be used to plant items which need more root space. This would also allow you to layer flowers and plants in multiple rows to create more elaborate flower displays.

A flower box can enhance the beauty of your home, make the best of the little space you have or to bring life to a dull apartment but not enough without the right selection of flower or plant. Pick plants that would suit the environment – consider the climate of your location and the amount of sunlight the window boxes get. You can plant flowers that will be able to go with the season that would mean you would have to modify plant, season after season. If you don’t have enough time to do this as often as that, you can plant yearly. There are flowers that are great annual plants like petunias, marigolds, and Snapdragons. During winter, planting Pansies and flowering kale will present your miniature garden some color. Take a look the sample of herb garden window box below at the attachment page.
