Step-by-Step Guide to Planting a Window Box
If you’ve always wondered how to achieve that professional and luscious look in a window box but aren’t quite sure how, this tutorial is for you.
We’ll show you step-by-step photos and give you tips to help you on your way to creating the most beautiful window box planters on the block.
How to Create a Beautiful Window Box for Your Home
Step 1 – Empty Out Your Window Box from the Past Season
Get rid of all the soil (you don’t have to throw it out, though – toss it into the garden or a flower bed) so you’re starting fresh. It’s important to use fresh soil each season for optimal flower growth.
Potting soil is specifically designed for areas such as flower beds, while the potting mix is designed for things such as planters, hanging baskets, and window boxes. You can research why this is true, but for this tutorial, just take my word for it.
Step 2 – Get Your Potting Mix
Smooth out the potting mix, pressing gently to remove air pockets. Ensure it’s nice and evenly spread throughout the window box, to give your plants the best environment to grow.
Step 3 – Fill Your Window Box with Potting Mix
Don’t be afraid to move things around, group them together, spread them apart…whatever looks balanced and appealing. This is part of the fun!
Step 4 – Decide on the Arrangement of Your Plants
