Another simple and easy to do at home display
I noticed this evergreen display at the Ralph Lauren shop near the Rue du Rivoli. Box and ivy, easy peasy, stays green forever as long as you trim it in October and spring and water it (not too much). The box can be purchased as little plants but they take a while to grow, however, if you purchase box in a ball or a shape, it is really expensive. I suppose, being Ralph Lauren, they don't really mind! This display should last and last and I find it really effective. You can plant spring bulbs such as mini daffodils or crocus so they they show through in February/March too. You can adapt this look for smaller windowboxes. I liked the green/deep blue contrast.
