Garden Window Season

Written by green1 on Apr 3rd, 2008 | Filed under: Gardens, Inside and Outside, Replacement Windows

Many of you might not know it, but today marks the start of the garden window season. If you want to get a head start on your flower gardens and vegetable garden you can safely start your seedlings indoors. Imagine being able to start your plants without the risk of a cold night and a heavy frost killing them! Most kitchen windows or bathroom windows can be replaced with a garden window in less than one day. Once you transfer your plants outdoors you can continue to use your new garden window year round to grow herbs and regular house plants. Think of the benefits of nice fresh herbs year round only inches from your sink!
Garden Window

Their are several options when you order a new garden window, some of the most popular ones are;

1. Shelves if you want to grow 2 or more layers of small plants.

2. Custom art work on the glass like beveled glass, stained glass, and glass with lead or zinc patterns.

3. Knee braces that support your garden window so it does not sag and cause glass failure.

Your local replacement window professional can guide you through all of the options and help you determine your project cost. Feel free to post any comments and Charles from Green Home Improvements can answer your questions.

  1. I have never thought about starting them indoors first. I know it seems so simple right. Last time I had a veggie garden we started it all outdoors from small plants or seeds. We are planning on starting one this year due to my new blog that is about baking and cooking, so it makes sense to have all these fresh herbs and vegetable plants on hand. Plus it will lower my cost of running the blog. I am going to bookmark you and come back often.

    Thanks
