The wind is still slightly chilly and the sun a little shy but spring, with all its bright blossoms and colours, has sprung. It is the perfect time to bring colour and fragrance to your home by planting an herb window box. Here’s how:
Start with a layer of gravel at the bottom of the window boxes, then fill them with a mixture of potting soil and compost, and plant your favourite salad and herb varieties. Remember, the window boxes have to get enough sun and water. In our herb box we planted golden origanum, rosemary, dill, butter lettuce, parsley, mustard leaves, sweet rocket, celery, thyme, spring onions, violas and pansies.
