lavender cuttings

Also keep an eye out round the plant you have - I keep finding little seedlings in the gravel round ours, and I've so far only moved one to another place, but it's doing quite nicely. I can see 4 or 5 more - must get round to moving them somewhere where we will actually want a lavender plant, rather than the middle of the pathgrin.

I've just bought rooting powder for this very purpose so very interested in reading when, how and if you can.

clicks on GO's link.

lurking here, because i want to do this with the HUGE rosemary bush in the garden here - as we don't own the place.

My parents have grown several generations of lavender hedges and borders all from cuttings. Works really well, so long as you root a few more than you think you'll need. Brilliant link by GO

Yes - what is it with rosemary? Ours is enormous, and we don't use it that often in cooking. Sometimes I have to hack it back, and I stick the cuttings in a bucket out the front, with a note to people to help themselves. Sage too.
