I need some advice, please...........


I've had these very cool window boxes hanging on the front of my house under the bedroom windows for a couple of months now. They are empty and I don't know what to plant in them at this time of year. Any suggestions? What ever I decide I think I'll try to plant stuff in pots and place the pots in the window box, that way, whatever it is that I plant dies (and it will die, I promise) and it will die soon, that's just the way I am, I kill everything I try to grow. My dad and Hoke can make anything grow and flourish, but not me. You'd think that green thumb would run in the family........NO........I didn't get the green thumb, I got the brown thumb. Let me know what you think I could get to grow and would look nice. I'm interested in your suggestions.........and don't say SILK FLOWERS!!!!

My vote would be red geraniums. They will do well until the heat comes.

I think you should put some pansies they always look great. But you will have to water them.Good luck. Love Char

How about something lush and green that will sort of drizzle down over the edges. Hey, Im great with indoor plants, but the outdoor stuff puzzles me!
