The window box should have a 1/2 inch or more external lip. A choice is to utilize a can or dishpan with a 1/2 inch or more external lip; if the can or dishpan doesn’t have waste openings, it doesn’t require inflexible froth sheeting on its inside base.

Punch holes in the netting with the utility blade so you can embed plants into the openings in the froth.
