I'm planning to plant some plants on a window box. I would like to get some recommendations as to which plants to get. This is the situation:
I live in New York City.
The container is about 24" by 6". It says its capacity is 15 quarts.
It will be set up outside one of my apartment windows, on the third floor.
The window box will receive direct sunlight for most of the day.
I'm new to this, so I would like plants that require little maintenance.
I'm looking for plants that look beautiful, colorful. Maybe one or two edible vegetable plants if possible.
I would like the plants to be perennial, unless there is a good reason for choosing annuals.
Oh, and I'm completely new to gardening, but I'm excited to start.
