I suppose this method applies for lavender cuttings too ?
As far as I can see the guy started out from dry compost ?
I followed every single step of this interesting video-project.
However, a few of the leafs of the cuttings are turning blackafter one week.
Any suggestions ?
Keep on the good work !

Hello Grant - Lemon Balm is a totally different plant to Lemon Grass

This is Lemon Balm

and this is Lemon Grass

Lemon Balm is very easy to grow and spreads quite quickly.

I grew some Lemon grass from the pieces you can buy in a supermarket and it can be grown from seed.

Hope this helps
