Spring Window Box Planting Ideas

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.  The fact that window boxes are attached to a home gives them much needed protection from some of the early spring weather we have may encounter.  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.

I made this quick video while planting up my six large window box containers on Saturday.  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.

I love to change out what is growing in my window boxes to fit the season.  There really isn’t a reason not to have window boxes with something decorative in them all year-round.  In winter you can add conifers and pinecones and other natural elements and in Autumn add cool hardy veggies, herbs and mums!

    • In Michigan …. I would plant them in the weeks to come. If we are lucky the weather will stay warm and they will be rocking your garden by late May!

  1. Hi Bren,
    I’m enjoying the plant combos you’ve been talking about recently. I’m looking forward to planting a climbing rose with my clematis this year and trying strawberries in my railing planters. And I drool over your geodome. Please keep the ideas coming!

    • Great to connect with you Kim – thank you! Every Spring I feel like I’m in a race to beat summer because it always POPS up at us so quick (weather forecast). I will do my best to keep documenting a few of the daily projects I’m doing here in my home garden. Thank you so much again for stopping by – I appreciate the comment.
