mint cuttings

I've started some cuttings of my Chocolate Mint. These were just clipped and stuck straight into the soil, kept damp.
I also cut some and stuck into a bulb vase of water. The ones rooting in water seem to be doing a lot better.

These two pictures were taken just a few days apart; you can see how quickly the roots are growing. Soon I will put them into pots of their own, and pinch off their heads to encourage branching.
Oh, and did a few cuttings of Lavender as well since I wanted to thin that one out anyways.
