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

Plants for Window
Boxes
To help you select the best plants for your Window Box. We have put together a list with pictures and tips for cultivation indexed under the seasons of the year.
     
 
 
 
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

Window boxes, winter, summer & autumn


  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.
