Now's the time to be planning your spring garden. Lavender is great for bumblebees, honeybees, butterflies and hummingbird hawkmoths and a great addition to any outdoor space. REALLY want to grow lavender
Rosemary is easy to propagate, and sometimes roots will develop even in a glass of water on a sunny windowsill. I have found that the best time of year to take cuttings is in the late fall and early winter.
Pea gravel and pebbles can weigh down windowboxes. Empty water bottles are a lightweight option. Place rinsed bottles inside the planter and add soil on top of them. The space between the bottles will allow proper drainage without the extra weight.
