I was flipping through an old issue of Vegetarian Times magazine and came across an article about herbs that have healing properties. One of the herbs highlighted was Calendula, or Pot Marigold. The article inspired this simple windowbox idea.
This design couldn’t be simpler. Along the back side of the window box, plant as many calendulas as you can fit in. Or, you could try growing them from seed. In that case, simply sow the calendula seeds in a straight line according to the seed packet instructions. There are some really beautiful varieties of Calendula that you should check out, like ‘Zeolights.’
In front of the calendula, plant an odd number of bacopa plants along the front of the window box. Fill in around the bacopa with potting soil and you’re done!
Check back later today for the calendula salve recipe.
