A windowsill garden is a small collection of plants that grow in a windowsill either in your home or out on a small patio space. Some things to consider when creating your windowsill garden is sunlight, containers and maintenance. 

  • Sunlight: The windowsill or patio should receive at least 5 hours of sunlight per day so plants that need full sun can thrive. 
  • Containers: Different containers can be used to create your windowsill garden such as tin cans, mason jars, wooden boxes and more. 
  • Maintenance: Part of maintenance is a watering schedule and also pruning and harvesting plants in small containers.
