Plant the cuttings in a pot, container, or directly in the garden. Be sure the medium contains good quality, well draining soil. Place the pot in a sunny area and water the cuttings on a regular basis. Once a week, fertilize using an organic flower fertilizer.

Continue to monitor your lavender cuttings. Be sure the soil is always moist, but also be careful not to over water the plant.

Will this work for growing Lavender indoors in the winter in New York State??
It could work so long as you keep your lavender pot in a warm and sunny area. Let us know how it works out for you 🙂
It’s been almost a year, how did it go, Patricia. I’m going to try it for this Winter. I have a healthy Lavender plant on my porch and they never seem to make it through the Winter. I have sunny windows and tables… will try indoors.
Was just gonna ask that question!
What time of year should this be done?
Preferably, you’d do this in the spring, once the weather has warmed up 🙂
