I think the method is exactly the same Catie - i'd try again later this year - sometimes cuttings are a bit hit and miss. My stoechas ones worked, but i had to cover them with a propagator lid for a few weeks to stop them drooping - even though the books say not to do that with lavender.
Hi Catie, i also tried cuttings from my lavender last year but they didnt take, as chicky said, its probably worth trying in a propogator. I instead bought a decent sized plant from B&Q fairly cheaply, but i might try a few more cuttings in a propogator this year.
Have you tried this method? Toward the end of the season. When the flower heads have seeded up. Cut the whole plant/s down to just a few inches. Then literally bury the lot under a layer of light compost. When growth resumes. You will find that practically every new shoot will be rooted, just seperate and pot up. This method also works for many other bushy type perennials.
