The Windowbox Allotment

Useful tips on how to grow & enjoy fruit & veg. from your windowsill !

Welcome to the site

I set up this site to share my experiences of growing and harvesting fruit and veg. from my very own windowboxes - Having no real garden of my own, it's been a fun experiment to see what's done well and what hasn't - Hopefully you can learn from some of my mistakes!

What I have proved is that you can get reasonable crops and still have a very attractive windowbox to boot.
