A windowsill, mantelpiece, desk or shelf may seem a difficult spot to fill with flowers, but a long, slim container filled with bulbs or potted herbs will suit the space perfectly. This type of design will also last a long time in a sunny spot; bulbs and herbs with roots will grow well if there is enough natural light in the room.
