Victorian Window Boxes

Victorian Window Box available in Small (38.95) and Large (48.95) at Garden Boutique.

These charming Victorian-style window boxes are perfect if you like the rustic, antiquated flavour of Victorian cottage gardens and countryside chic. They are perfect for planting up on porches, window sills and walls filled with lazy drooping ivy and pretty pink skimia.

Made of sturdy rustic iron these window boxes are designed to look like aging antiques - only you will know they weren't discovered in a tangle of weeds in the garden of a dilapidated provinical cottage.

The Small window box measures 18cm x 66cm and the Large is a generous 18cm x 88cm. They contain a flat zinc tray so you can keep your pots balanced. Our ever-popular small round zinc pots fit perfectly into these windowboxes and complete the shabby vintage look.

A good white window box is hard to find...

We have been searching high and low for a white window box at Garden Boutique. It is not an easy task, as so many white window boxes begin to look tatty and cheap after only a couple of weeks in the garden.

Finally, we have found a white window box that stands up to the task. The bad news is that it is not cheap. It seems perfection comes with a hefty price tag.

The good news is that these white window boxes are nigh on indestructable. The planters are colour powder coated as a whole single piece so that there are no seams or joints on the exterior surface into which water could penetrate. Then they are baked at 180 degrees centigrade to allow the powder colour to super adhere into the aluminium surface to create exceptional colour longevity.

Each white window box comes with a 16 year colour guarantee so you know it will look good for years to come.
