Two weeks ago I tried my hand at propagating 2 of our woody herbs: rosemary and lavender.
I filled a 9-inch disposable aluminum pan (from the pantry) which came with a plastic lid with vermiculite.
It’s been difficult for me not to check the rooting everyday but since the plastic lid acted like a mini-greenhouse I could see everything was still moist.
I took a look at one of the rosemary sprigs and it had some short roots.
I asked Charlie if he had any small pots so I could plant each sprig in its own pot.
When I came home from work he had planted them up.
From the 10 original cuttings all 5 rosemary made it but only 3 of the lavender are in good shape. Hopefully they’ll continue to grow.
Do you think this would work with olive tree cuttings? Any other suggestions?
