Transplanting Lavender Cuttings In Raised Bed

In my video Propagating and Growing Lavender From Cutting, I showed how to start them in a small cup or pot.
Now that they have had a couple of months to take root and grow a little, it’s time to put them in their permanent home.

I have a raised bed out at the edge of my back yard. They will get plenty of morning sun.

The soil

I worked in a little vermiculite into the existing soil to make it nice and soft to allow the roots to grow down into the bed. It’s critical that you minimize shock when transplanting any kind of seedling. So I am trying to imitate the soil in the pot.

Dig a hole just big enough to set the plant down at the same depth it was in the pot. You do not want to bury them deeper than they were.

Water the seedling well, very well. I will not fertilize them at this point. I want them to get established in their new home before feeding.
