    What a great project! Most herbs will do well in window boxes, and many are tolerant of a little shade. Any trailing flowers in your sunny boxes will be happy if they get plenty of water. Nasturtiums love window boxes, as do fuchsias. Consider miniature roses or wildflowers...the sky is the limit.

    Here's some suggestions:
