Q.Self-Watering Planter In Garden Window

Zone Ventura CA | cpompe1 added on May 1, 2024 | Answered

Hi. I have 2 rectangular self-watering planters. These planters are small and right now I have them sitting in my garden window (this garden window faces West and definitely gets all of the afternoon sun). I have a good idea as to herbs/plants that grow well in self-watering pots but what I want to ask is this. Are there herbs/plants that grow well in self-watering pots AND sit inside a garden window that gets VERY BRIGHT sunlight in the afternoon – especially strong sunlight as the sun sets? If someone can please give me some ideas about this, I would greatly appreciate it.

You have quite the array available to you. Your limiting factors will be the oversize of the herbs vs the container, and making sure that they get enough of that bright light. This article will help with procedure and suggestions for plants:
