Win £225-worth of window boxes

This competition closed on Thursday, 24 November 2016 at 11:55 AM

A lively window box can really brighten up your home. Filled with pretty bedding plants, herbs or veg, it can change with the seasons, too.

myWindowbox window boxes come in a range of styles and sizes to suit the style of your home. The range of ornate window boxes, made from cast aluminium, is ideal for period properties. Available in three designs, they have the look and feel of a traditional cast iron window box, with the advantage of being a lot lighter.

The range of steel window boxes has a lighter and more contemporary look. Also available in three designs, they're made from steel bar that has been given a highly durable, powder-coated finish. Both types are easy to install, attaching directly to the wall of your home.

We have two prizes available to win. Each comprises £225-worth of window boxes of your choice – in either cast aluminium or steel – from myWindowbox.
