Window boxes have become an economical and beautiful addition to many gardens, porches, verandas and windowsills. Whether you live in a house, in the country, or an apartment in the city, an attractively planted flowering window box is an excellent addition to your landscaping.
Metal and wire window boxes, which have large reinforced hangers, are readily available at most lawn and garden centers. The type of window box you choose will depend upon the type of flowers you wish to grow and your artistic abilities. Both solid metal and wire-style window boxes are widely used today.
