Planting Window Boxes
Before planting anything in your window boxes, fill the bottom third of the container with packing peanuts. This step ensures good drainage and reduces weight.
Next, add potting soil to fill the box. Sprinkle all-purpose granular time-release fertilizer (such as 14-14-14) on top. Place tall plants in the back of the window box, medium-sized ones in the middle, and trailers to drape over the front edge. Finally, make sure to water the box thoroughly.
