What is a garden window and how are they used

If you lack the space nor need a new greenhouse, a garden window is a good substitute for pot plants. Their protruding nature makes them look like a miniature greenhouse and a bay window. In northern hemisphere countries like ours, they are best installed facing south. They are also a suitable alternative for an exterior window box.


Typically they come with two or three glass shelves, depending on the height. These are often adjustable, to allow for taller or smaller pot plants and flowers. Unlike a bay window or a bow window, they are opened on the sides. Hinges are placed on part of the garden window that is closest to the wall at their longest point. Sometimes on top of the window or farthest away from the wall.

As well as adding light for your plants and flowers, they add extra light to your room. The most popular place to fit a garden window is usually the kitchen. They can also be free standing, covering the whole of the window, or full length up to ground level.
