My Review: I am a big fan of window boxes. I currently have them in my home. So, I naturally was drawn to this book and it did not disappoint. I loved the creativity and originality of this book. I can't wait to try some of the 100 projects and planting ideas in my own window boxes.  The book is organized very smart. It is divided into 6 basic chapters revolving around the seasons:

Source Guide



In addition to stunning pictures and design inspiration, this book offers practical advice for plant care and several design tutorials.  I love this book and so will you! In fact, I love this book so much, I am giving away a copy to one lucky commenter!

5/5 stars


From the Publisher: Window box gardens are beautiful on a windowsill, but displayed in unexpected places they add four-season style and color all around the home. Authors Cramer and Johnson offer dozens of inventive ideas for container gardens to enjoy every month of the year. More than 200 exquisite color photographs highlight the range of seasonal plants and innovative containers. Project instructions, care tips, and source listings round out the how-to pages.

I wow.. some of these window boxes are simple beautiful. I adore the one with the little eggs in it. I am so sure that I would bust an egg trying to get the dirt in it... I am such a clutz.

We live in a camper and my husband has promised me to build us a little porch. (I miss my home that had a full front porch). I would love to have this book to give me ideas on how to make this little porch flower box friendly. It sure would make me happy to have some pretty flowers hanging on it. Thanks for the chance.

We JUST bought/moved into an 1880s Baltimore (Federal Hill) row house last week, and I've been scouring the internet for inspiration for window box ideas.
