Nothing puts a prettier face on a house than a window box -- and no form of gardening is so accessible to beginner and expert alike, to suburban homeowner and apartment dweller. Even to those who don't have an appropriate window, for window boxes can flourish on balconies, stairways, even on the ground.

In this beautiful but highly practical book, author Tovah Martin gives you all the information you need to select the right container, fill it, and keep it looking fresh and handsome all season long. A gallery of plants that goes beyond the typical red geraniums, blue lobelia, and white alyssum will inspire you to try this delightful form of gardening.
