Removable Windowboxes

Anonymous added on July 13, 2011 | Answered

I am planning a patio garden. I know window boxes need to be substantial for watering purposes, but because of the location (it is in a bar area), they need to be removable because of vandalism. What type do you suggest? Also, what type of plants? This patio has sun only till 1 p. m.

There are several different options available to you with regard to your question about window boxes. It appears you only benefit from morning sun, so a mix of herbs and some perennials that like partial shade would be a good choice. You probably want to consider using window boxes made from light weight plastic materials, that would be much easier to move even with the addition of soil and plants. Many look like wood or terra cotta. This article may be helpful to get you started.
