J. Peterson Garden Design added this to How to Make a Window Garden Grow
Watering and fertilizing. Your watering schedule will depend upon the type of plant material you use (thirsty impatiens will need daily watering; succulents will need less, for example) and the sun exposure that your boxes receive. The more sun your window boxes get, the quicker they will dry out and need to be watered. In general, most plants in window boxes need to be watered several times a week — you can use your hose-end sprinkler for lower window boxes, watering cans for boxes on second stories and drip irrigation for boxes on any level. There are also some self-watering boxes that, once watered, store water in the bottom of the box so your plants can be irrigated for up to two weeks — great for busy people or for when you are away on vacation.You should also fertilize according to the type of plants you have, but using a water-soluble fertilizer once or twice a month is a good general rule of thumb to keep things lush, green and flowering.

CONTAINER GARDENING #3 12/2013 FERTILIZER--Water-souble once or twice a month depending on plants seems to be best. Watering and fertilizing.

CONTAINER GARDENING #2 12/2013 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.
