A few weeks ago I planted up a few new plants in my two window boxes. I wanted to get something low maintenance that will look well maintained.
I decided to buy six small alpine plants all different shapes and colours to add a bit of character and something a little different. I love the shapes of the leaves and the colours against the lead-look planters.
To plant up the window boxes I added some fresh soil in the containers before I planted the alpines, I added some slow release plant food and a few water retaining crystals. I spent time arranging the alpines to balance the colours and shapes. I planted them up and then gave them a good watering.
I'm looking forward to seeing these alpines grow gradually and seeing a few of them flower.
