I have fond memories of my Nana’s gardens being full of pansies, roses, and sweet williams. I always loved seeing all the flowers there. Flowers add so much colour and character to a home.
Sadly, I do not have a green thumb. I have even killed a cactus! I am hoping to change that. Our home has several window boxes. Some are easily accessible, some are not. With Spring around the corner I find myself pondering about attempting to plant something in a few of the window boxes.
Our home gets hit by all sorts of light. One side gets direct sun, another side is always in the shade. So what do we plant?
I like the idea of doing a mini veggie and herb garden, but have no idea where to begin. Do I need to start with growing some items inside first? I would also love to have flowers in the boxes at the front of our home, but I have no idea what to plant, what soil is needed, etc…
Can someone help me please? How do we start down the path of having flowers in our flower boxes, and how do we go about starting a mini veggie and herb garden?
