Window boxes, winter, summer & autumn
It is quite possible to have window boxes for spring, summer or winter colour. For a summer window box, begin by planting a central "bushy" plant - geraniums or fuchsias are ideal. Then surround them with several smaller potted plants such as petunias , and include plants such as French marigolds, alyssum and patience plants around the centre area .You can then add trailing varieties of lobelia, geranium and ground ivy at the edges.
The tomato variety Basket King fits a window box, and they are ideal quarters for herbs. Again, as with other garden planters, choose the low-growing ones such as sage, parsley and thyme.
In the autumn, when window boxes start to look tired, discard their contents on to the compost heap and throw the old soil old soil away. Reline the window box, if necessary. Fill it with-fresh soil
and replant for a winter show. In all but the warmest areas, you will need to use frost-hardy plants. If there is

any chance of a frost, use young shrubs such as the variegated pieris or the deep pink flowered "Christmas Cheer". Surround this plant with winter-flowering or foliage heathers and, to trail- over the sides, use ivies or small plants of the evergreen honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica "Aureoreticulata"). Alternatively, use the variegated euonymus (Euonymus fortunei " Emerald' n Gold " or E.'f. "Emerald Gaiety"). You can raise any of these plants from cuttings so, once you have
bought your first plants, you will not have to replace them even though the original plants will, after the first year, have outgrown their living quarters. There is no reason why

you should not put a few spring bulbs into a winter window box, or even plant up an early spring window box with bulbs such as crocus and low-growing varieties of some of the tulip species. In the very coldest of regions, where winters are even too severe to grow broad leaf evergreens at all, rely on cut branches of conifers.
Window box maintenance
Spring and summer window boxes will need feeding once a week with a liquid seaweed or liquid tomato fertilizer. Plants in winter window boxes will hardly be growing at all, so will need no feeding.
Spring and summer window boxes need to be watered regularly. In summer they should be watered at least daily and, if they are in a particularly warm, sunny position, they may need watering twice a day.
In winter, the weather is much wetter so they may not need watering but, if the weather is un-
usually dry, keep an eye on the soil mix; water only when the top feels dry.
