In a perfect world, we would all have an abundance of space and land to enjoy. We may put up a playground set for the kids, a large garage for dad and large garden for mom to plant flowers or vegetables. Unfortunately, it is not a perfect world, and not all of these items are practical for all people. For example, you may live in an apartment or condo where these things are not possible. Or, the house that you own is very small, and does not have the available room. So, what can you do?

While the lack of space may be a problem for the playground and the garage, but it may not be a problem for would be gardeners. While you may not have the space for a large garden, you may be able to start of window box garden. What is that you may ask? A window box is a small container or hanging basket that can be used to plant items. They can contain anything from flowers to fresh herbs to vegetables.

While a window box garden is the name, you can actually use other methods. If you have a small patio or fire escape, you can place them there. Or, if you only have a window sill, that would be an acceptable location for growing. Plus, the container does not have to be elaborate, it can be as simple as an old coffee can, glass jars, a hanging basket or any similar containers. All you really need is Sun and some water to help your small garden grow.

To help give you some ideas on how to start a window box garden, we have gathered a few pages to get you started. Hopefully, this will help you enjoy gardening and eventually you will be able to have the large garden that you have wanted.
