After this past weeks hurricane my window boxes need replanting. The wind really tore the plants up. Some of you may have a similar problem. If you've got Coleus or sweet potato vines take the best clippings and put them in a dish or cup half full of tap water. Make sure they've got plenty of sunshine and in a matter of a few days you'll begin to see roots.
Once all my clippings have a sufficient root system I will put them into a larger pot with moist soil and keep them in my little greenhouse over the winter months. By next spring I am sure to have several flourishing plants.
I like to have my window boxes full at least three seasons out of the four. I had planned to grow ornamental kale and cabbage but have not started the seeds. I'm going to do that in the next few days and hope that they're fast growers. Boxes filled with lots of the same type of plant always make a big impact. Are you planning on planting anything for fall?
