I want to plant window boxes again this year. It's been a while since I've done so and I miss the happy flowers greeting me at the window. I'm probably not going to bother planting a garden on the lawn like I used to because weeding makes me weep. And I'm sure the hubs doesn't miss me screaming bloody murder every time I come across a worm.
I used to plant geraniums and lobelia, but I think I need something that I don't have to deadhead almost every other day. I'm loving the look of the pansies (My MIL has an irrational hatred of pansies so I've never planted them but I'm thinking she needs to just get over it lol!) and how they seem to just grow and fill the space. And I do like the hanging plants around the edges but somehow one or two will die off within a month or so and I hate them looking all uneven. I'll probably attempt planting the lobelia again and hope for the best.
I'm also thinking of tomatoes and lettuce on the back porch because I loooooved the tomatoes we grew a few years ago. I've got myself some new gardening gloves because if I touch dirt, my brain might shut down. Any suggestions on plants that aren't too needy to plant in window boxes? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
