        1. Thanks!
          There are two ways to start lavender:
          1. From seed, usually available just about anywhere, barely covered and kept slightly moist until well-started.
          2. Go to a plant-buying place and buy one! 🙂
          You also can sometimes make a start by pulling off a 9″ piece of branch and shoving it into moist soil and waiting. If you find a donor plant, take about ten of these starts, as the survival rate can be low.
          The most important thing about lavender is that it needs dry soil, once it is started. In very humid climate, it just rots.
          Oh, and my lavender isn’t doing so hot, right now…:-(
