Rooting lavender

Zone Woodridge, IL 60517--Zone 5 | Anonymous added on June 6, 2017 | Answered

I have a question about lavender rooting. We just bought some lavender plants and found that one had a large piece cracked off. I put it in some water to root it, but your article makes it look as though I could put it directly in soil. Unfortunately, the piece has several buds on it but I would like to preserve as much of it as possible. Can I put the whole piece in soil without cutting off the individual branches? Should I bother trying to root it in water? Any help is appreciated! (I hope that you can see the attached photos.)

No, rooting in a planting medium is the way to propagate Lavender.
Placing in water will not be successful.
