Low Maintenance Window Box Recipe

windowboxpost_1

Hello Lovely Readers! Today I want to share with you a super easy recipe for low maintenance window boxes, that will look great Spring to Fall! I definitely do not have a green thumb, so if I can do it, you surely can to. I’m really pleased with how these turned out this year. Half of the plants actually survived the (albeit mild) winter, and were blooming like crazy by April!
Ingredients:
1. Creeping Jenny
2. Red Caladium
3. Green Caladium
4. Purple Shamrock

Really, the only secret to my success was choosing hearty and easy to grow plants that don’t require a ton of light. I really like that our boxes are free of florals. I think it gives them a really unique look in a neighborhood of window box glory!

The only other trick is water, water, water! I use the dehumidifier water from our basement to give these guys a daily morning drink. Happy gardening!
