Here Are 5 Great Window Flower Box Ideas That You Should Try
Monday, February 25, 2019
Your residence doesn’t need to look drab and dreary during the winter and fall seasons. Flower boxes offer advantages like keeping your flowers safe from snails and bugs besides adding a colorful dimension to your home. Here is how you do it:
Window Box with Trailing Flowers
A window box will look wonderful with trailing flowers. These types of flowers can be very delicate. So, a flower box is a great way of keeping them safe in addition to flaunting their trailing nature. Petunias have always been very popular. For variety, you can select other unusual options like the red chenille plant. Ivy-leafed pelargoniums, Euphorbia ‘Diamond Frost’, and black-eyed Susan vine will spill gorgeously around your flowerbox. You can also add a little textural interest by interspersing your flowers with other trailing plants like creeping Jenny or sweet potato vine.
Flower Box for the Urban Garden
You can use a window box that is spilling over with flowers to add plenty of depth to an urban garden that is nearly devoid of soil. The addition of a flower box brimming with vines and trailing flowers will lend a densely packed appearance that can beautify urban gardens that look rather sparse and humble on their own. For this, you can fill your flower box with closely packed pelargoniums. For foliage interest, you can also add in a few licorice plants.
Flower Box for Fall Season
Your flower box need not look bleak and dismal in the fall season. You will have to first rip out the wilting summer annuals and replace them with hardy yet splendid flowers like the chrysanthemum.
You can also give the fall season a great send-off by planting ornamental kale and gourds which will add vibrancy to your flower box. This will lend zest and vivacity to your residence against the backdrop of a rather dreary season. Asters won’t let you down. In fact, these tenacious perennials will do very well in the fall season.
Winter Season Flower Box
Pansies are an old favorite for the winter season. These quintessential winter flowers will look wonderful in a flower box by your window. With a window box, you won’t have to wait for half-frozen winter soil to bring in your trowel. Pansies can also make a comeback during hard freeze so you can expect your pansies to blossom early in spring even under hard conditions. Pansies will rejuvenate even when subjected to freezing cold 26 degrees Fahrenheit. You can also pair your pansies with other wonderful cold-resistant varieties like violas, scented stock, ornamental cabbage or sweet peas.
Coastal Weather Flower Box
If you live in coastal areas, you must select flowers that can withstand the heat, salt spray, and wind. Your flower box will do very well with resilient varieties like ‘Nana’, ‘Sea Urchins’, and beautiful pink flowers of sea thrift.
Flower boxes are now an essential part of the modern residential and commercial architecture. Your property will certainly look much better with colorful flower boxes. Flower boxes can enhance the visual appeal of your property without excessive costs like renovation.
