Description

Petunias are beautiful flowers for window boxes since they produce abundant blooms and have a long blooming season, so you will be able to enjoy their bright colors from spring until fall. There are many petunia varieties, such as Limelight, Cascadias Rim Magenta, and Fortunia Early Blue Vein. To improvedrainage, it helps to raise the soil level a little by forking in plenty of grit and sharp sand, however, this is not usually practical beyond a small ridge or mound: growing Lavender in a pot is much easier than raising the level of a whole bed! It is wonderfully bushy, but ever so slightly shorter and slower growing compared to other English lavender varieties like the paler Munstead.There isn't much in it, but Hidcote suits tight spaces and containers a bit better than more vigorous cultivars. Caring for a window box with celosia is quite easy, as it requires little pruning and deadheading. The plant is drought-tolerant once established, but it benefits from regular watering during periods of dry weather. Regular fertilization encourages healthy growth and blooming. Lavandula angustifolia, also called True Lavender or Common Lavender has long been cultivated for its high-quality lavender oil. Cultivars of this species tend to be compact in habit and have grayish-green narrow leaves and relatively short compact flower spikes. Flowering typically occurs from late spring to midsummer. Small-growing Lavender cultivars are ideally suited for containers as they keep a reasonably compact and small form naturally. Larger Lavender varieties can also be grown in containers, but they will need to be either transplanted to the garden after a couple of years or planted in a larger container.

As for the plants themselves, you're looking for mainly tough, drought-tolerant, compact species. For a summer window box in a sunny south or west-facing position, I suggest any of the following: the more compact forms of Lavandua angustifolia, or English lavender, which has deeply scented, edible, purple or white flowers in summer (use them sparingly to flavour ice creams, cakes and sorbets) and aromatic evergreen silver-grey foliage; Mexican fleabane or Erigeron karvinskianus, which produces a mass of small, pretty, daisy-like flowers throughout the summer months; prostrate rosemary ( Rosmarinus officinalis 'Prostratus'), the culinary/medicinal evergreen shrubby herb with pretty, edible blue flowers in summer; any of the many different kinds of evergreen, hardy and highly decorative sempervivums; Artemisia ludoviciana and Cineraria 'Dusty Miller' for their handsome silver-white foliage: pelargoniums, which also thrive in these sorts of bright, dry growing conditions, throwing out dense clusters of flowers from early summer until the first frosts; argyranthemums for the same reason, although just like the pelargoniums, they do need to be deadheaded intermittently to prolong flowering; and nasturtiums, whose peppery leaves and jewel-coloured flowers are both edible and tasty.Major Lawrence Waterbury Johnston’s mother bought Hidcote Manor in Gloucestershire in 1907;beginning in 1910, Lawrence (1871-1958) went on to create perhaps the most famous Arts and Crafts garden ever. Despite being known for Hidcote, his true passion was Serre de la Madone, his larger, relatively private garden inMenton, France, which was not continued after his death, contrary to his wishes. Use good quality soil: Use a high-quality, well-draining, and nutrient-rich soil mix. Fill your window box with soil within 1-2 inches of the top. Pansies are one of the first flowers to bloom in the spring, so they will add color to your window boxes when other plants are still dormant. These plants are cold-tolerant and can survive a light frost, making them a good choice for early and late-season window boxes. On the downside, impatiens are susceptible to downy mildew, a fungal disease that can cause the leaves to turn yellow and the plant to die off. To prevent this, it’s important to space out the plants in the window box to encourage good air circulation, avoid overhead watering, and remove any infected plants as soon as possible. 2. Coleus (Plectranthus scutellarioides)

Flowers with a main theme are best suited to petunias, geraniums, zinnias, nasturtiums, and begonias. Fill in with plants such as inch plants, ivy, euonymus, heather, and vinca, which will cascade over the box’s edge. Impatiens thrive in shady areas. Coleus, heliotrope, and salvia are some more subtle options for a more delicate look. Hidcote'sviolet goes well with pink roses like Nathalie Nypels, La Rose de Molinard or Souvenir de la Malmaison. In a potager, Hidcote makes a welcome change from Box (Buxus sempervirens) when used as elegant, dark flowered edging for a bed full of herbs, which often have purple flowers themselves. Heavy clay on a dry, sunny hill that sheds water should be fine, but light, dry, poorly fertile soils are ideal.Succulent garden: Create a low-maintenance window box garden with a mix of colorful succulents such as echeveria, sedum, and crassula. These drought-tolerant plants are perfect for hot, sunny windows. Nasturtiums are a popular choice for window boxes due to their bright, cheerful blooms and easy-to-grow nature. A hard trim every year in late autumn ensures dense growth, more flowers, and extends Lavender'sornamental life span.
