Cut 6ins of top growth, pull the leaves off the bottom 3 ins and insert the bottoms into a pot of gritty compost. Water the pot then cover with a polybag secured with a placcy bag until they're rooted.
I've not tried it but youtube says they can be rooted in water

Rosemary is very easy to root.
Over the autumn and spring I have had success with a pot in a cold greenhouse.
But always found summer is the best and I dib a hole straight into the ground to plant a cutting.
Rosemary much like a hedge cutting are very easy to propagate and grow quickly.
I normally take a 5-6 inch sixe cutting, remove all the lower leaves, dip in a rooting medium (I have always used Cinnamon) and pot up or into the ground. Water in well.

Can you do that with lavender cuttings and would they also root in water?
I love cooking with wine, and sometimes I even add food!

You can root lavender cuttings in the same way...  I tear off small non-flowering shoots, and trim the little woody heel shred to make it tidy, cut out the softest top section to leave a piece overall about 7-20cm long and then rooting powder (not tried cinnamon, must give this ago, thank you Lettice) and in the ground somewhere shady. if I  feel generous they get some grit in the ground or sharp sand  :lol:

Soft green cuttings work as Mumofstig outlined,
