How to make a flower box at home

Ever look at a beautiful flower box while walking down the street and think to yourself, “I wish I could make one of those.” Well, look no further, our Horticulture Division is here to help you get started.

We are all spending more time at home these days, and many people are finding that gardening is the perfect way to pass the time. Given the limited amount of space many of us have at home, flower boxes are perfect for the urban gardener. 

To help you get started with your flower box, we took a visit to the City of Boston greenhouse at Franklin Park to meet with Anthony “Tony” Hennessy, Superintendent of Horticulture for the Park’s Department. He has worked for the department for more than 22 years. Tony and his team design many of the beautiful flower displays you see throughout the City in our parks and street corners.
