Hi All,
Is it possible to divide heather? I imagine cuttings would be difficult to grow as heathers are so woody. Perhaps not.....
Thanks

Would that be the same for lavender? I bought a particularly large lavender plant with a view to dividing it.

Thanks

I don't think lavender can be divided either, unless several plants have been grown on together in one pot...? If you look closely you will see....
