Taking cuttings.

A couple of months ago, my father in law gifted me a couple of lavender plants he had grown from cuttings. Now that these plants are firmly established in my garden, I decided to take cuttings and give it a try myself. So this weekend past I tried my hand at propagation using the stem cutting method. I followed the advice I had read online here and here.

It was a very quick process and so far the cuttings appear to be surviving. They are safely put away in the greenhouse at the moment, as I understand the humidity does help them. I am hoping that if this does work, I might be able to grow some of my Christmas gifts this year... I mean, who wouldn't want a few beautiful pots of lavender?
