Windowboxes are an easy and inexpensive way to transform an ordinary house into something special. Though we offer 3 sizes and 4 colors of Self-Watering Windowboxes, not everyone has a house that’s well-suited to them.

Not to worry! We’ve designed some special racks that let you enjoy window boxes without the windows. Our 2-Tier and 3-Tier Cascade Planters are made of sturdy, square stock steel and have a handsome flat black finish. Entirely free-standing and self-supporting, they can be used on a porch or patio, will spruce up a wall or fence, and can even be used indoors.

This spring we planted up two of the 3-Tier Cascade Planters, back-to-back, in our display gardens. We filled the six, 31″ long window boxes with Self-Watering Container Mix, and then planted a colorful assortment of culinary herbs and edible flowers. For herbs we have several types of basil and sage, rosemary, oregano, thyme, fennel and lemon grass. For edible flowers we included nasturtiums, violas, calendula, marigolds and lavender. Every bit as pretty as a more traditional planting of annual flowers, these munchable flower boxes will provide tasty snips and nibbles all summer long.
