    I have successfully kept lavender cuttings and small plants in pots for many months until their final home was decided. As long as I remember to water them ...   ;- )

    You planning hedging or edging or going into the perfume business?

    Well there is a overgrown rocky part of the garden that will be cleared in the winter months when its all died back. Until then i shall grow them in pots.

    Dan-pot them up- grow on through the winter- plant out in the spring when they are big enough.

    Do they need to go in gritty soil, if so how do i make it?

    I just use ordinary potting compost and never had a problem-or are you asking about their final home?

    Mine arrived today and I have potted them on with regular compost. I used cardboard toilet roll inners cut in half and set in a seed tray. Filled them with the compost and popped a little plug into each on. just the right size for now, watered and in the cold frame till they need potting on again.
