Attributes of suitable plant containers
Containers should be large enough to give plants plenty of root space for healthy growth. Windowboxes should be at least 9-10 inches deep and 9-10 inches wide. Let the width of your windows gauge the width of the windowboxes you select. The sizes or shapes of other containers are best chosen by the variety or size of plants you want to grow in them.

All containers should have sufficient drainage holes in the bottom. It is a good idea to place a layer of pebbles or gravel, Styrofoam peanuts, or perhaps broken pieces of clay pots in containers lacking holes. Drain holes prevent overwatering and help provide air circulation necessary for healthy plant growth. Be sure to thoroughly clean any containers that were used for previous plants, as this prevents diseases from attacking your new plants.
