Need good window box source

Our wooden window boxes we assume are about 10 years old as they came with the house. A couple are rotted too badly now so we need to replace them. I'm not finding a good selection at the places I've been around me. We want boxes that will be painted, not a cedar or similar wood that is meant to weather naturally.

If anybody has a good window box source let me know. I live in central NH, travel to the northern NH/southern Maine seacoast area, and we are in Nashua every other week on Sunday. Any of those areas would be great. Also, if you have a great mail-order source you could recommend please pass that along as well!

P.S. No building of boxes here, other than basic assembly. I just made my own raised beds from "scratch", but DH is allergic to hammers and I'm not going to take on a full box-building project, though I will assemble pre-cut pieces from a kit. Thanks!

RE: Need good window box source

Walpole Woodworkers makes a good quality painted window box. I have two. I do find the planting area a bit narrow but they have worked well for me nonetheless.

I lined them with heavy-duty black trash bags--invisible when planted--and poked holes in the bottom of the bags. There are drainage holes in the boxes.

They have several locations in New England and you can probably see them on their website.
