    great video thanks short and to the point with a lot of good information.

    I thought geraniums need full sun, so they will grow okay in shade?

  3. Vickie keatley on April 30, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    Always! 😁

    Ran into your video tonight. Loved your tips. I’m new to gardening so I need help. I’ll binge watch some later as it’s the wee hours now. I was painting on rocks. A passion of mine. Always critters "IN" a garden themed. I keep & give my Art away. I’m looking forward to running in! I just subscribed!

    Jack I love your videos. I’m originally from Detroit but I’m in Illinois now. I spent summers going up north and to Mackinac Island. Every video you do is just like being home for me. So thank you! I love your window boxes. Is there a blue print that we could have so that we could accomplish that in our Illinois home as well? Maybe bring a little bit of Mackinac here. Thanks Jack

    Personally not usually a fan of red flowers, but your selection works beautifully. I love it. What would you recommend For for a black window box (grey house with white trim) that gets 5-6 hours of full morning sun in a predominantly white garden?

    Oh my that 😢 hurt. Ripping the top like that 🤨🤔

  8. Janis Mazzone on April 30, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    I like the strong colors too… bright white would have also added a touch if contrast. Seems like a dark side of the cabin. Beautiful! Thank you for telling us about protecting the roots. Goes against ALL we here elsewhere. But I believe you because it makes sense..

    Fill ….. Fluff ….. Trail ! Nice sharing ….. MI Garden Designer! …….

  17. darlene sitto on April 30, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    When you plant them on an angle do you totally bury the root ball? I always try this but they never seem to come out right.

    I prefer blue, white and yellow in window boxes, with creeping Jenny’s

  20. Christine Ti on April 30, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    I first saw you and your crew in some video garden tours a few years ago with Laura from Garden Answer during the Grand Garden Show. Nice to find you have your own videos. Love seeing how you put together some of the magic of Mackinac Island. I wouldn’t have ever put those flower colors together, but seeing them the way you did them has me convinced I will try this combination. Thanks for the trick about tipping the "spiller"!

  21. Patti B on April 30, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Great video!! I am new to planting my own rail planters this year and have been following you and Proven Winners for tips 😊. I actually bought a salmon zonal geranium, white knight lobularia, and silver falls for my planters. I was wondering, is there a certain way to plant the geranium, that is, is there a “front”? Some of mine have a flower starting to bloom on one side with leaves on the other. I saw that for begonias, you plant with leaves pointed outward. Is it the same for geraniums? Thanks!,!

    Would you please spell the cascading dark purple plant…I love it!

  32. Lois Fulton on April 30, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Hi I love your videos. First saw your tours with Laura.
    I planted my window box with your design. The lobularia and super bells are doing great.
    My problem is the geraniums have to be deadheaded. The window box is high and I have to climb a ladder
    To get to them. I’m 79 so would rather not climb if I don’t have to.
    Can you suggest another flower to replace the geraniums?
    My house is light blue with dark purple blue shutters.
    Lots of shades of pink , purple and other color flowers below.
    Thanks so much. Lois

  33. Ruby Arias on April 30, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Ah man…I tickled the roots today….wish I would have seen this before.

  34. Loda on April 30, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    Hi there, I am new to your channel. What is the tool that has a orange handle that you are wearing?

  35. Cathy Madsen on April 30, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    You need to make some new gardening videos!!!

  36. Kay Wallace on April 30, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    Hey Jack,
    Look at the camera…like you are talking to us…face to face.

    It gives a better feeling to the viewers.

  37. Teri Havlik on April 30, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    I really love this combo for your window box planter!

  38. Shirley Senkler on April 30, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    Love the color combo, you and Laura from Garden Answer think alike. Glad to discover this channel too.

  39. 50Street21 on April 30, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    I think you’re cool. I wish you were my neighbour. You’ve inspired me to plant the window box outside my dining room. With Covid-19, line ups
    to garden centres are unbelievable. I’ll do what I can do. Thanks! Have just subscribed.

    Very nice! Buried treasure red strawberries would be a nice Spiller 😊

    Love this guy

  43. awill2 on April 30, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    something so satisfying about how quickly those were planted and how you just chuck the pot away so fast!

  44. Erics Granny on April 30, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    Thanks for the tips!

  45. N. W. on April 30, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    I love oranges and yellows. I find pinks and purples a bit boring. Nice window box!

  48. David Cattin on April 30, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    I like how quickly you got everything in. No need to fuss over the planting. I have 10 window boxes. I’m partial to trailing begonias because they are constant bloomers. Great job!

  49. Gris Espino on April 30, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    So even when the roots are really root bound, a mat of going around in circles you dont tease them loose? Thanks

  50. Nurse Alie on April 30, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    I can watch this guy all day long cause he is runway model material
