So, I have been trying to make window box plantings last for quite a while. They always die. They dry out because it is just too hot in the full sun, etc. It's been quite pathetic.
I have these beautiful window boxes and have had to put (dare I say it)...fake flowers in them. Yes, I succumbed to fake flowers last year. There are no pictures. I wish I could erase the memory of it.
Don't think less of me? Are you? Maybe just a little? It's ok.
So as I was getting ready this winter for planning my 10 weeks of blissful gardening. Yes, I dream of my garden - all winter long. Hence the garden journal this year. So I made a pinterest board called Through the glass. Here are some faves, that I was considering for inspiration.
This a gorgeous springtime collection for a flower box.
My guess is to start planting them in the fall for the spring ahead?
Anyone done this?
I have done bulbs in containers before, you can see my attempt here.
Definitely, one to consider.
Love this for a shady box.
Ah, succulents they look so hardy and full and delicious.
I wouldn't eat them, you know what I mean, their name suits them.
