Planting tips. Make sure your window boxes are installed before planting them, as they will be too heavy once planted to move into place and secure to the brackets. Use a good-quality potting soil or bagged garden soil, then add some slow-release fertilizers that will feed your plants a small amount every time they are watered. If you are using more arid plants like cacti or succulents, be sure to use a soil that is formulated for those types of plants to allow them to drain better.I like to really pack a lot of plants into window boxes, especially if I'm using flowering annuals. Annuals look good only for that growing season, so I don't like to wait months for them to fill in. Using six-packs of color, 4-inch pots or 1-gallon containers is usually the best option, as anything bigger will likely be too large for the box.

Purchased boxes should be the width of the window and the trim, or if your window has shutters, the width of your window plus 4 to 6 inches. Anything smaller will appear undersize and out of proportion. A standard window box is typically about 8 inches deep, but custom boxes can be any depth you desire, as long as it's in proportion to your window.

windowbox. For wooden box, use waterproof roofing cement to delay rotting. For cocoa baskets, line with plastic, punch a few holes, to keep them from drying out too fast. Impatients want a lot of water.
