Two Sizes of Window Boxes
Made from recycled aluminium rain gutter material, these long lasting window box units come in twp widths/depths. The six inch wide, 41/2 ” deep planter will meet most of your needs and grows beautiful annual flowers. The 8″ wide planter has six and a half inches deep and therefore requires less watering because of the soil medium mass. Other things to consider is whether or not there is an overhang that prevents rain from hitting. Personally, I had a 6″ wide for two years and it was lovely…but my house has an overhang and I needed to water the plants twice a day in the high heat of summer. I now have 8″ wide window boxes and they do not require as much watering. Here is a picture of each on my house:
Both look fantastic with flowers and are even attractive during dormant seasons. We wouldn’t suggest using bulbs in any container and especially one that is off of the ground.
