The Q&A Archives: what will grow

Question: i have a window box with a over hang roof over it. it get no sun .what can i plant in the window box that will look nice and grow?

Answer: Some annuals that do well in shade include impatiens and caladiums. You could also use English ivy for another texture and to add a trailing element. Make sure the window box has drainage holes in the bottom and use a good quality potting mix formulated for container plants. Water as needed to keep the soil evenly moist like a wrung out sponge, not sopping wet and not dried out.
