Sorry to sound like a Gran, but I’m quite looking forward to replanting my window box!
I’d wanted one for a while, especially when I lived in a teeny box sized flat in Camden, without a speck of outside space, but, being on the first floor, I was worried it might fall and kill someone (a bit like a penny falling from the Eiffel Tower… except with more mud). So when I moved to the relative safety of a garden flat (basement flat, but rebranded), a window box was purchased and filled to the brim with all sorts of cool blooms. It was brilliant! They were so colourful and lasted for AGES. It even had its own resident bee (it really did!).
But I kept forgetting to water it. And it died…
The same thing happened again last spring. It’s all so exciting at first, and then you find yourself thinking ‘must remember to water the window box’ while dashing to work… poor wee window box.
The third set of white flower carcasses have been in the dried up window box since the end of summer, and I think now might be the time to get rid of them. But what to plant…?! Perhaps a cactus?
