I love seeing indoor plants flourishing and thriving. That would be a testament to the homeowners' ability to care and maintain vibrancy.

I would add forsythia to the list of easy to grow from cuttings, every year when they were done blooming my grandmother would prune them and start new ones by sticking them in the ground if the weather was damp, if not she would put them in a bucket until the weather was damp and just poke them right in the ground, no digging required, she often gave established baby bushes to friends and relatives that were updating their landscaping.


Certain annuals could have been added to the list of things to collect seed from, with Marigolds and zinnias, you really only have to buy them once if you want to have instant gratification, dead head after the buds started to dry out, and you can pull the seeds right out and then when it rains if you have a bare patch of garden, you can just sprinkle the seeds out before or during a light rain or water them in. They are one of the types of flowers you will see in amish country that the Amish plant in their vegetable garden to attract beneficial insects. Coneflowers are also one you can get from seed too, but their cones are brittle and you can end up getting splinters trying to separate the seeds, also, what many people do not know, is you need to freeze the seeds for coneflowers to get them to start easier..
