Kensington Wooden Window Box


The Kensington Wooden Window Box is perfect for any window ledge, wall or fence. The design is elegant and was inspired by the Kensington planter. It is a beautiful way to display your plants and flowers whilst looking good in its own right.
Kensington windowboxes are made from Scandinavian red pine with holes in the base for good drainage.    The windowboxes can be finished in clear, golden brown, wild sage or white preservative. We also offer a selection of Farrow & Ball paint finishes.

Keep a window box blooming with a succesion of flowers


If you have only one window  box continuous  planting is an effective  way of making  an impact with spring bulbs. They  often look most dramatic  when a single variety is planted  densely in the window box  to create a block of colour. This is a method of planting where you plant up separate planters with plants to be moved into the window box when a set of flowers start to fade. Plant in autumn, choosing your  plants  carefully, so that as one set of flowers starts to fade, the next will be ready to bloom. And consider  the effect of colour: do you want a continuous theme or to increase the intensity of the display into spring  before softening the palette  as summer  approaches? The starting  point for a display could be a crocus with larger  than normal  blooms:  Crocus  vernus 'BIue'. For a complete  contrast, follow this up with the earliest  trumpet daffodil to flower, Narcissus  'Rijnveld's Early Sensation'. This short daffodil  grows  to only

It is a type of tulip often called peony-flowered because  of its huge double  blooms. Plant the crocus bulbs in your  chosen nursery(for want of a better word) planter in September.  All bulbs need the largest planters you can manage  for maximum  protection  against  frost. Even hardy  bulbs can suffer in a small  planter

because  they  get frost from all directions - top, bottom and sideways.
The best compost  for bulbs is John Innes No.1. with an added handful each  of multipurpose  compost and grit. Plant bulbs no more than 2,5 cm  apart or even touching;  any gaps will look unsightly in a window box  display.  Plant the daffodils at the same time as the crocus in another planter, or in several  if that is more convenient.  It doesn't matter if these  planters look a little shabby, because  the flowers will be moved into your  window box later.  You can plant the tulip bulbs as late as  November, again in spare  planters.
Put all the planters in a sheltered place to grow, ready to be brought  forward one at a time. Deadhead after flowering, then lift the plants  to make room for the next ones. The old bulbs can be moved into your  borders, or into other planters to die off and be stored until next year.
