I've never been much good at growing things from cuttings . For example, my sister Karen on Rosemary, "just pull bits off and stick them in the ground". I do that? They all die. She does that? They all grow into robust plants.
This is my attempt at lavender. We have a beautiful pink one here and four of a row of them just "FLEW" away in our latest gales. Disappeared. Nada, nothing left. Ripped out by the roots.
I'm feeling pretty hopeful about 5 of these. I have been careful with them. Woody parts selected. Stripped stalks. Tops trimmed. They look the part and, boy, I'll be stoked if they grow.
