Lavender from Seed

Posted: 24/05/2012 at 11:23

Last autumn when I trimmed my lavender plant, all the little snippets,( some only 1 inch long), I stuck into a pot of grit /mcp mix and covered with a lemonade bottle. They stayed in a cold greenhouse all winter and now I see I have 8 little plants , some now 5 inch high with good roots coming through the holes at the bottom. I'm amazed they took so easily. Will do the same next year to increase stock. Will pot them on now the warmer weather is here. Would recommend anyone to have a go this way. Could easily do on a windowsill if no greenhouse available.

 Sorry figrat, got as far as copying, and just did not understand the rest. I'm not very technical I'm afraid!

The only thing I've managed to do is change my profile picture to the one I wanted to load! Don;t know if it's big enough for anyone to see.

Is this a euphorbia

Thank you lilylouise. It looks a bit like one of the picture but a very different colour.

 I'm determined to get the photo on, but still not sure why it rejects it.

I have this growing in the garden, but it is something the birds must have brought. It looks like a euphorbia to me but I can't find a picture of it online or in any of my gardening books. Anyone out there got an idea please?

Tried to load photo but message says this is not a valid file. Any help gratefully recieved.

Many thanks Frank. I did find out that one of them is a cyprus spurge from the Wiki photos. I'll try to post a photo of the red leaved one I've got and see if anyone on here can name it for me. It's a very delicate one on a long stem with just the foliage at the top very sparsly leafed. Difficult to explain, yes I'll try the photo tomorrow.

I have 3 euphorbias in my garden, but only one of them I have planted. The birds have bought the others in, hence I don;t know what their names are. Anyone know of a web site with pictures that I can use to identify the unknown plants. I hoped that the national collection shown on GW the other week might be able to help , but they just list all the names without photos.
