Ooh Lavender! I Need MORE!!
Wanting more of this great plant, I started several from cuttings. It is simple really. Just cut off a nonflowering stems about 5 inches long just below a leaf node. Strip off the bottom 2 inches of leaves, dip in root starter and plant in potting soil. (Make a hole in the soil and stick the cutting in. This will keep the root starter from being knocked off.) Now, water but don't over water. This is the hardest part for me. I either don't water or I drown it.
I have them sitting out on the back porch, out of the sunlight, with a plastic bag over them, making sure the bag doesn't touch the plants. (fungus can be a problem) The bag acts like a mini greenhouse. In about 6-8 weeks I should have roots on my shoots! I'll plant them in larger pots and keep up sizing them until they are ready to plant in the ground.
I'll keep these little ones alive, but in the meantime, try this with one of your favorite plants. The process is simple, and if it doesn't work, you aren't out much but your time.
