One of my favorite Spring projects is putting together my window boxes on the back kitchen patio. In this post I share my spring window box planting ideas that are easy to recreate and enjoy.
Window Box in Spring
Spring is finally here in my garden and I’m excited to get out and start planting some of my favorite flowers, herbs, and veggies in the home garden and landscape. The temperatures in the forecast are kind of scaring me because I bet we will end up jumping from Winter right onto Summer here in Northwest Ohio. One thing I can be sure will be safe are the window boxes we added to the kitchen patio garden last summer. Growing in window boxes actually helps protect most annuals from spring frost.
In today’s post I’m sharing the six window boxes I designed in this kitchen garden patio area. I hope it will give you some ideas on what you can grow in containers in your home garden.
Dreaming of the Kitchen Patio Filled with Window Boxes
It was once just a dream… in early spring I would sit back on the step off the sunroom dreaming of the kitchen patio and garden I hoped to create in that muddy mess.

Spring Window Box Planting Ideas
I made this quick video while planting up my six large window box containers in Spring. This is a really quick planting project that can be done in under 30 minutes if you have all the ingredients ready to go. In the video I share mixing up flowers, herbs and fruit using a simple potting soil mix.
This video is on my YouTube Channel filled with other creative ideas.
Plants That Grow Well In Spring Window Boxes
A few of my favorite plants you can grow from seed to add to the Spring Window Boxes are listed below:
- Lettuce ( there are so many great varieties)
- Nasturtium (great for trailing out of the box)
- Onion Chive
