Some of them repel biting insects, other invite useful wasps that kill the parasites on the other plants. Most of those plants below will live in perfect coexistence near each other (except the mint, if planted in the same box or pot). They will also not grow too tall and wide, so you can fill small spaces around your windows and not risk stumbling upon them all the time. Rosemary Some use this herb for cooking, other use it as a herbal tea. As with all plants having needle-like leaves, the rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis L.) is evergreen and can be held indoors in the whole winter, still leaving pleasant aroma. Most of the needle-leaved plants are very good purifiers, especially for humid winter air. They breathe carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen. Rosemary is not exception. The most important function of this herb is its ability to improve cognitive function and shield the brain from free radicals. And the presence of this plant in the room is enough in the long run. Rosemary still exhales some of its essential oils in the room (you don't need to boil it in a tea infusion to benefit from it). Lavender (Lavandula spica L.) You need to check if you are not allergic first, but this herb makes very good house plant. 1. It is excellent insect repellent. 2. The aroma relaxes the lungs and helps for calmer night sleep. 3. The aroma (also) helps relax if you suffer from anxiety. If you don't want to buy oil lamp for aromatherapy or sleep with lit aroma candle beside your bed -have a pot of Lavender growing on your bedroom window. It loves sunlight so - don't deprive it or it will refuse to bloom. At late autumn, the sunlight will be insufficient, so gather the seeds when the plant withers and reseed them at early spring. The soil is best to be sandy and not too rich (exclude compost and fertilizers) and the plant is best kept in a pot with good drainage. Don't drown the roots or you risk losing the whole plant. Basil (Ocimum basilicum L.) a.k.a. Basil is one well known herb and spice. Naturally it is spread in Asia and North Africa but can easily be cultivated for all climates and domesticated. Grows about 1-2 feet long with small white blossoms and wide leaves. The fruit is small 4-seed nut that dries and drops by itself at autumn and can be reseeded in the next Spring. The rich aroma and the pleasant peppery taste are only one part of the coin. It can be also used as herbal tea and as all other plants will reduce the Carbon Dioxide in the room. Gather some leaves for the salad and leave enough smaller leaves for it to grow. Mint Mint (Mentha spicatta L.) The best herbal tea for winter. The best plant for indoor planting. There are many subspecies which are also called Mint. They include plants suitable with cooking with dry beans, plants suitable for baking meat, others suitable for extracting fragrant oils for perfumery and scent lamps and dozens more. All of them has few things in common: They make the air easier to breathe if you have lung disease. They have very pleasant aroma. They attract one small wasp when blooming. The wasp kills some parasites on other plants or injects eggs inside them. They make excellent herbal tea or tasty cooking spice. They love sun and water but are incredibly easy to grow. You can cut a branch and leave it in a glass of water for one week. It will grow very potent roots and you can plant it everywhere. From the main root system often grow additional spin offs which you can use or replant elsewhere. In my own terrace garden, the mint is often partly rooted and removed, because the root is quite invasive and strong (smothers and kills other plants around the mint). Jasmine (Jasminum officinale L.) Jasmine opens its flowers between 6 and 8 PM, when the temperature is lower. Having Jasmine aroma when dining is very pleasant. Having jasmine tea is also very good. (Just bruise some petals in a cup and pour boiling water. Cover for 10 minutes with a small dish). In China and India, it is mixed with green tea leaves and tumbled until the green tea absorbs all the fragrance form the Jasmine. In fact - Jasmine tea bags bought from store are actually green or Oolong tea with Jasmine scent. And even if Jasmine is not completely robbed from healing properties, Iit is better used as an evening house fragrance and air purifier. I strongly recommend you grow this plant. It is not very expensive. Geranium Geraniums, (Pelargoniums) are more than 200 kinds. For all of them is valid: Excellent aroma if you can tolerate it. Mosquitoes repellent. Don't attract most of the parasites which suck plants dry. Looks excellent when blooming. Purify air. A detached cutting can be grown by just re-planting it. Takes about a week to grow new roots. Don't need much care. Can live without water for 2 weeks in cold days. More sun = more blossoms. If you are still not convinced or not having too much botanical knowledge - this is the best houseplant for beginners. Even more: Rose geranium (Pelargonium roseum Willd.) can be used as a helpful herbal tea in Diabetes melitus (type 2). It lowers blood glucose levels very quick. Coffee plant Coffee plant (Coffea arabica L.) CAN be domesticated easier than an avocado seedling. There are above 120 subspecies Coffee plants, with sub-gene arabica being most famous and easy to grow at home. They are spread worldwide and you probably don't know how good this plant can be indoors. It blooms in white and smells so refreshing in the morning, you will probably skip your coffee beverage and just breathe. The normal coffee plant can grow to a small tree (3 meters), but indoors in a pot, it is quite compact - 1 meter (3 feet). Takes about 4 years until it starts blossoming and if you allow sufficient sunlight and help germination from small wasps and bees - you can grow your own coffee beans. Roast and grind them to coffee :) one plant provides about 50 grams dry coffee mass (~ 2 ounces). Sufficient for one week. Woodbine a.k.a. European honeysuckle or Common honeysuckle (Lonicera periclymenum L.) This plant is very useful for indoor stairs, especially if your rooms have sufficient sunlight. Regardless it is forest semi-parasitic plant growing over tree trunks, it can be domesticated and dwarfed. You can grow it in pot with a wooden log or dry branch planted in the soil, so the vine can climb on it. It has very sweet scent, especially at night. Can be grown from a seed, and takes about 2 years to start blossoming indoors

How to root hydrangea cuttings.... as if I have a green thumb :)
Rooting hydrangea cuttings - Locate a stem of softwood and cut a shoot that has several leaves. Trim it into 5-inch-long pieces that each have a leaf toward the top. Remove extra leaves; then cuts the remaining leaf in half to minimize evaporation (and the need for watering). Dip the other end in powdered rooting hormone; plant the cuttings in trays filled with a soilless mix and perlite. Cover with a plastic bag, and stash in a shady location, misting regularly to keep the leaf hydrated.

The next time you have green onions, don't throw away the white ends. Simply submerge them in a glass of water and place them in a sunny window. Your onions will begin to grow almost immediately and can be harvested almost indefinitely. We just use kitchen scissors to cut what we need for meals. I periodically empty out the water, rinse the roots off and give them fresh water.
