Q.What Type Of Scented Herb Is This?

Zone Staffordshire, UK | Anonymous added on May 31, 2021 | Answered

The photos show a cutting which was taken a year ago and rooted. I have just potted it up and now it is not looking well. Firstly, what type of scented herb is this, and secondly, what do I appear to have done to upset it? Look forward to your reply. n

I think it is overwatered. The container looks too big for a small plant. When there is excess soil, it holds more water than the plant needs. Only go up one pot size when repotting a plant.

Since it is so crumpled over, it's hard to tell what it is, but I'm leaning toward lavender or gray Santolina (lavender cotton).
