The Best Window Box Plants

They are probably the best-known summer flowers. The low-growing varieties are suitable for window-boxes on balconies and planters on terraces. Marigolds can be sown directly in the garden when danger of frost has passed, or they can be started indoors for earlier blooms.

Harden Off Those Containers

Add color to your garden long before it is time to plant regular spring annuals. Make sure your container is hardened off before you place it outside and it will provide weeks of color when temperatures are still cool. Place it in a location where you will see it often, it's the perfect cure for spring fever.

All About Dogwood

Red osier dogwood is just the best plant for this time of year – cut down some branches – you can find them in fields and ditches and then place them in garden pots or containers. Fill the over-season containers with soil to hold the stems. Attach some of those low voltage bulbs and you are all set for a fine looking decoration to brighten up those dull Winter days.
