Propagating lavender starts

Share Button

This is the time we start taking cuttings, and propagating for new lavender starts, while our lavender plants are in their dormnet state. Today I took 130 cuttings off one of our Angustifolia  English lavender varieties. These little cuttings will go into a starter tray, and into our greenhouse. They will receive a fine-mist watering, 3 times a day, for about 4-8 weeks, upon which time they will produce roots.  They will eventually be transplanted into 3″ containers as they grow. Then they will be planted on one of our wholesale farms. We will steam distill the flowers for their beautiful aromatherapy quality essential oil, for calming anxiety, stress, and for insomnia. I feel calm from the aroma, just sitting inside on this rainy fall day, propagating these lovely flowers. 🙂
