Propagating lavender

Since lavenders are susceptible to disease in humid conditions, keep the cuttings in a well-ventilated area until they have rooted. After a few weeks, cuttings that have grown roots can be potted. These plants can be transferred into the garden in fall.

It takes lavender 2-3 years to reach maximum flower and foliage production. You can then take cuttings and start new plants until a plant is about 5 years old when flower output starts to decline.
