From the founders of the popular gardening blog The Horticult comes a guide to the window box, the container garden that is by far the most accessible for any skill level, space, or quality of light. The 16 indoor and outdoor projects range from succulents to veggies, and showcase a variety of full sun- and shade-loving foliage. Bright photography and a thorough introduction to soil, watering, and plant varieties make this a great primer for anyone who’s green to gardening.

Hardcover, 176 pages

February 2018

There are sixteen different window box designs in the book, each with care instructions and steps for set-up. The plants used for each project have the names included and the book has many beautiful color photos. I am making the herb garden box. The detox box and the ice box are next in line. It is a cute little rectangle book ( almost 6×9 )) that would be great for home school science, for a house warming gift, or to reference while greening up a small space in your home.

Wonderful book. A great home school resource and a good book for nature lovers. Each habitat presented covers both pages and includes a half page flap for a different viewpoint. The habitats in the book are the following: the ocean, the rainforest, the North Pole, the river, mountain caves, the savannah, the clifftop, and the forest. Fun spotting the animals described in their habitats. Good for little and big kids. The illustrations and flap page makes it a fun way to learn.
