    When planning for spring windowboxes, it is always a good idea to look back at past years’ efforts. Depending on your style and the local supply of spring bloomers, you can keep it simple or go big!

    Our nearby Produce Junction┬áhas spring bulbs and flowers at a fraction of the cost of local garden centers. That’s where I like to load up for our front windowbox creations. But, I have also found tulips for a dollar a pot after Easter in area grocery stores. Or, you can plan ahead and plant up your own pots with bulbs in the Fall.

    It’s not just about plants though. Add spring flowering bush and tree branches such as Kerria, Forsythia, pussywillow, Apple and Cherry for height. Garden accents such as small fences or trellises and birds add interest to your windowbox.

    My favorite windowbox additions are vintage galvanized watering cans, woven baskets and birdhouses. I keep the plants in pots, either purchased or repotted. This way I can easily switch out plants by the season and keep color in our windowboxes all spring. Plants with spent blooms are dug into the flowerbeds for next year.

    Coming soon! Look for our spring 2015 windowboxes!
