Willow Tea as a Rooting Hormone: Willow bark contains natural plant growth hormones & thus is a FREE easy to make rooting hormone used to propagate plant cuttings. How to make Willow Tea: Collect young twigs/stems of any of willow species with green or yellow bark. Remove all leaves. Cut the twigs into short pieces about 1", & place them in a heatproof container. Cover the cut stems with boiling water, just as you would when brewing tea. Allow the willow and water to steep overnight.

How to take lavender cuttings

    take lavender cuttings either in the spring - just before the plant comes into flower, or in the autumn around august time. Using a sharp, sterilised knife or secateurs, cut a small branch off the lower half of the plant that is about 3-5 inches long. Make sure that the branch is soft and not woody. Strip the bottom half of the cutting of leaves, place in the hole in soil that you prepared earlier then close the hole with soil. There is no need to use rooting hormones on lavender cutting, but no harm will be done if you are addicted to using it. Water your new plant thoroughly after planting. For the first couple of weeks keep the soil damp, but then water less frequently. At this point water when the soil begins to get dry, but before the plant displays any distress. Too much water will kill your new lavender plant. When attempting to propagate lavender, this is the most common mistake.
