Blooming Windowbox

Container Care

Blooming window boxes require a balance of well-drained soil that also retains moisture and fertilizer for growth.

  • A 1-inch layer of foam peanuts in the bottom prevents soil from escaping and adds insulation for roots.
  • Add moisture-retaining polymer to the potting mix in hot, sunny boxes. This decreases daily water needs.
  • Feed your box weekly with a liquid, flower-boosting fertilizer such as 15-30-15. Watering the container prior to feeding will prevent fertilizer burn.
