Window Boxes

I always buy too many or not enough flowers for my windows boxes. If for example I want to fill with begonia and asparagus fern, the box is 29 x 7, how many of each should I purchase. For the same size box and I would like to put smal Coleus and impatiens how many?



This works if you buy your plants at a nursery which also sells boxes. "Borrow" a box the size you have, and literally fill it with your selections. When it looks right, remove the plants, return the "borrowed" box to the shelf, and make your purchase.
