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

Q. Growing Celery

I got Susan’s tip about how to keep it from tasting bitter. But as growing advice, my plants are looking very healthy and each has about 6-8 main stalks. However there are a number of side growths, thin stalks, coming from the root. Should I remove these to maintain strong growth for the main stalks?

Tie growing celery stalks together to keep them from sprawling.
Pick the stalks whenever you want. Young celery is as good as the mature product.
Harvest stalks from the outside in. You may begin harvesting when stalks are about 8 inches tall.

Q. I would like to know, if my celery became frozen in my fridge, can I still plant the bottom of this celery?

My refrigerator works so well that it froze the bottom of my celery. I’m asking if I could let it thaw out and still plant the bottom of it
My email is dongarvin@yahoo.com

If it was entirely frozen it would not likely survive to root.
You would be best starting over rooting a fresh celery root end.
