Cottage-Style Window Box Ideas

If bright colors don’t suit your cottage, muted tones can create an elegant statement. Choosing multiple plants in the same shade provides interesting texture and subtle simplicity. Choose high-quality potting soil for your window box. The soil should retain moisture and drain well, and it should be replaced annually. To help lighten the container, which can easily become heavy with saturated soil, add packing peanuts to the bottom. This also helps with drainage.
