Hatton Wooden Window Box


The Hatton windowbox is perfect for any window ledge, wall or fence. The clean lines of the Hatton will accentuate the beauty of your plants and flowers whilst looking good in its own right.
Hatton windowboxes are made from Scandinavian red pine and have an easy to use, concealed hanger (supplied with all fixings), plus holes in the base for good drainage.  If you would prefer a plain back to stand on the windowledge rather than hang on the wall or fence make a note in the 'special instructions' box on the way to the checkout.  The windowboxes can be finished in clear, golden brown or wild sage preservative. We also offer a selection of Farrow & Ball paint finishes.

Look out for pests in your window box


Surprisingly  few pests affect window box  plants - far fewer than in the open garden.  You may notice  occasional unsightly bites out of a leaf or petal,  but these  isolated incidents seldom merit the wholesale use of chemical  controls.  Only one or two stubborn  pests  need chemicals  to effectively get rid of them.
As a rule, the fewer chemicals  you splash around, the more beneficial insects  - particularly  lacewings  and ladybirds, but even  wasps  and hoverflies - will move  in and do the job for you. These  mini-predators  have voracious appetites  for aphids  and other insect pests, and with care it is possible  to establish  a balance between friend  and foe. You can even  buy beneficial insect larvae to introduce  into the garden, but if you do this, you will need to avoid chemical controls  completely.  Also, unless you retain a few insect pests as a food source,  your  population  of 'goodies' will eventually  die out.
Although slugs and snails will attack plants grown in window boxes, they will not cause as many

problems as in the open garden, as  they dislike hard surfaces. Putting a gravel mulch on top of a window box, may act as a deterrent, but the best control is to inspect the window boxes regularly and remove any slugs and snails you find. Slug pellets often seem to attract  more than they destroy,  but a liquid slug control  watered over the window box  will help to deal with severe cases of infestation. The  most common  pests  on window boxes plants  are aphids.  Although usually referred  to as 'greenfly',  aphids  come  in many colours  and sizes. They  are small sap-sucking  insects,  and disfigure plants, usually on young shoots, but occasionally

elsewhere.  The pansy aphid,  for example, colonises the stems just above  soil level. Damage  caused  by aphids tends to be more unsightly than fatal. However, in the case of pansy,  lettuce and carrot-willow  aphids  (which can devastate parsley and other herbs of the same family), you may become  aware  of the problem  only  when the plants start  to lose condition, by which time it is often too late to do anything  about it.Aphids can spread  virus diseases among  plants  and can also, indirectly, cause  the fungal disease  sooty  mould.
The fungus lives on the sticky honeydew the aphids  secrete  and, if left unattended,  clogs up plant pores. The easiest  way to deal with this is to wash the affected  plant with warm water to which a small amount of washing-up liquid has been added.
Many insecticides control aphids, but one, pirimicarb,  is specific  to this pest and will therefore  not harm natural predators. A solution of soft soap, available in a ready-to-use  trigger spray,  is a good organic  alternative.
