The Trick to Creating Gorgeous Window Boxes
I love lush and beautiful window boxes, but every year for 6 years mine looked sad and stringy. Even with constant watering they always seemed to be on the brink of death. I almost gave up on them, but decided to give it one more go; and I finally succeeded in creating the perfect window boxes! So how did I do it? It was so ridiculously easy, I feel stupid for not discovering these two simple steps sooner.
I always wanted beautiful lush window boxes like you see in magazines. I finally stumbled upon two simple steps to create the perfect window boxes!
Step 1: Plant in Miracle Grow soil. Planters lose nutrients extremely fast, so in order to get full beautiful plants they need to fed. Every year I take out as much soil as I can from the planter and mix it in a bucket with equal amounts of Miracle Grow. This way I save money and the plants still get fed.
Step 2: Buy hanging baskets or container refills. To get a lush full look immediately I buy hanging baskets or planter refills and break them apart. That way I already have plants trailing over the edge (the mix of pink trailers all came together in one pot). I also find that it's cheaper than buying all the plants individually. Lastly: don't forget to water! A lot!
