PostSubject: Transplanted the Old Girl   Wed 21 Jul 2010, 3:46 am

I have a beloved lavender plant that I bought as a little tiny thing in a 4 inch pot way back when my son was a junior in high school some 12 years ago. This plant has been through moves to 3 houses. I refused to leave her behind. Unfortunately this past winter took a heavy toll on her. And she split down the middle.

Today, it broke my heart to uproot her. and to then take a saw to her middle at the split and divide her into two plants. I just thought that I could leave her be and risk her dying completely due to damage and disease. Or I could take the risk and divide her in the hopes of springing new life into two new plants.

I know that it may sound strang to some, but it was one of the hardest things I've ever done. She has been with me a long time. And she has given freely of herself for teas, breads, jellies, soaps, infusions, etc. We have have a connection, she and I. And tonight I send out a silent prayer to all the Green Spirits that the two new divisions of my Old Lavender Lady may rest comfortably in their new beds. And may they send out strong roots and grow healthy. And grace the new herb bed with their joyful splashes of lavender purple wands waving lightly in the breeze, teasing the summer bumble bees.

oh sweety, I know what you mean. When we moved I had to leave behind my old lavender girl. I made my sister in law promise to care for her. She will be wonderful, and now she will give you a sister to love!

I actually had to smuggle her and a few of her companions out from our old house. The new sellers wanted all plants/landscaping left intact. I tried to counter offer but they wouldn't budge. I had a really pretty yard. So I smuggle our my lavender girl, my old sage man (equally as old) a younger delphinum, and my grandmas rose. The yard was SO planted that it wasn't noticable, lol. I broght them over here to the new house in pots before we closed Smile

As of today, Half of my lavender lady is doing very well. the other half is a bit droopy. I've been giving them both extra care and love. Lots of green growth energies. So, I think her sister will perk up Smile

I know it's been awhile since you posted this, but I'm wondering how the plants turned out?
