How to Window Box

How to Window Box
by Chantal Aida Gordon and Ryan Benoit

Grow a few square feet of green no matter where you live. Meet the window box: by far the most accessible container garden for any skill level, space, or quality of light. Whether your window faces south where the sun floods in or north with nothing but shade, these indoor and outdoor projects show you how to easily arrange and cultivate succulents, herbs, cacti, vegetables, monstera, and more. Bright photography and instructions take you from understanding soil and watering needs to personalizing your own box, making this a great primer for anyone who is green to gardening.

This is what I’d consider a coffee table book, one left for visiting guests to look through. The photographs are colorful and provide plenty of detailed. I find this extremely helpful when going over the instructions as it helps visualize. And there are a lot of different styles from succulents to tropical to edible. There’s really a wide range.

Instructions start with how to hang the box, building and customizing, figuring out the best size and consideration for indoor window boxes.

This hardcover book is sure to delight garden lovers. Perfect for just about anyone from city dweller to farmer. I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
