Window boxes & Patio gardens
May 9, 2005 7:57 AM Subscribe
I'm moving into a new apartment in Chicago on June 1st, and I'm hoping to be able to have window boxes. There's also a ground-floor patio (shared with one other person), and I'm thinking of starting some container-type gardening. Any thoughts?

For the window boxes: does anyone have any suggestions for a type of window box that is lightweight and removable? I'll be in an apartment, so I don't want to have to drill into anything. I want to grow herbs (mmmm, fresh basil!). The windows are normal window width.
For the patio, are there particular plants/containers that would be good to live out on a patio? It's a shared space, so I can't do much more than one or two pots. I'm thinking tomatoes. Recommendations?
