|I am going to try to propagate lavender again|
I have been trying to propagate lavender by cuttings. It’s been about three weeks and there were some green young shoots growing from the cuttings. So I thought that they must have grown their roots and that it was time to pot them up, but unfortunately none of the lavender cuttings had roots.
Some of the petunias that I had taken cuttings at the same time had rooted, so I chose only those which were rooted and potted them up.
The lavender looked like it did well and grew more and more green branches, so I thought that the roots were growing. Now, I was wondering why it didn’t root well.
- Were the cuttings that I had taken too short?
- Was the temperature too low in the shade where I placed them?
I assume that those were the main two reasons why they didn’t work well, although I am going to try again.
When I took cuttings last time, the original lavender plant hadn’t grown much yet, so I could only get short cuttings. This time, the lavender has grown a bit more, so I managed to take longer cuttings about 10 cm or so.
Although it is already June, it is still a little chilly today, but I cannot put the cuttings in the sunny spot yet. Hopefully, it will be warmer tomorrow.
