If you want to maximize space even more, you can hang window boxes with cold weather plants this fall and winter. Just make sure that the box is very secure, so you don’t lose any plants, and choose hearty plants that do well in cold, since your plants are going to all be outside. Some smaller plants that work outdoors are:
- Bok choy
Since window boxes are totally exposed to the elements, you’ll need to keep a closer eye on the weather. When it’s going to frost, cover your window box with a towel or tarp if you can’t bring it inside. It’s also important to choose a window that gets a good amount of sunlight and that’s easy for you to access, so that you can water, feed, and harvest your plants.
Have you guys done any winter container gardening? I’d love to hear your experiences in the comments!
