We are actually a little verklempt over how much we love this window box. Bushy Bunny tail, tall and high; mounding, robust Nature's Shade Mulberry in the middle; long, cascading hits of hot pink on the Chenille plant, hanging low - and (surprise!) Mulberry Rose Love in a Mist, on her long, wiry stems, popping out here, there, and everywhere. That's right - thriller, filler, spiller, POP! We didn't come here just to fall in line, folks. We're here to shake it up. It's all happening.

How to Plant
Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Fill a little bit of the loose dirt back into the hole and tuck your plant in so the base of the stem is even with the top of the hole. Now fill in the rest of the soil around the roots, give the soft ground around the base of your new plant friend a few solid pats to compress the soil onto the roots, and a long, gentle drink of water.
Where to Plant
Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, in well draining soil.
When to Plant
Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon. Plant outside after your average last frost in the spring.
When to Expect Blooms
All summer long.
Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells. Pick the flowers regularly (Bring the flowers in! Make bouquets! Have fun!) to encourage more blooms. And ask us any questions along the way.
It's okay to pack the plants in closer in your window box than you would if planting in the ground. As the summer goes on, your plants will fill in and spill out in the most luscious, abundant way.
