can you grow lavender and rosemary inside? I am planning a move and am looking at some lofts. I love hydrangeas, lavender and rosemary - just as plants, I never think to use lavender and rosemary in the kitchen. I know I have good light in both units. just curious.

hydrangea, a single rooted stem for about a month--they sell them here for mother's day with one huge bloom

lavender, not at all

rosemary, a month or two then it would get really scraggly--they sell them here at Christmas time, pruned into a miniature tree, does ok a short time because it is winter when they don't grow anyway

I agree, these are not houseplants and need fresh air and a cold winter to rest. Many people have tried and failed, despite reading that it is possible with a lot of special care and treatment.

I overwinter rosemary that I grow yearly on my terrace, it’s almost banzai like. I have huge windows with lots of light, but it’s still not enough. It gets really soft, scraggly new growth that I just trim off every so often, then when I put it back outside, it grows beautifully again. They won’t last long or look good if they only grow indoors!

I tried to overwinter my lavender, but it died after just a short time inside.
