    That's definitely not a herb. I'm getting confused again where do herbs stop and garden plants start when they've got the same scientific name ?
    Here's one I asked earlier ( and am not much wiser!).

    My today's cuttings have been Ajuga reptans - one of the purple leaved forms. Decided it was a herb because it has medicinal uses according to PFAF

    It was in a hanging basket but I'm going to use it as ground cover where it works well.
    I have some bronze bugle - it spreads pretty well and does fine in either shade or sun.

    Some photos of the cuttings I took - all rooted and potted.

    These were poked into the pots and left to get on with it. At the back, lavender, next rosemary, then 3 types of sage and, in the round pots 2 different thymes.

    These were started in water and potted after rooting.
    From the back, Ajuga, Pineapple/tangerine sage. basil mint and apple mint.

    I love free plants too! I've had great success with Rosemary over the years...softwood cuttings, stripped lower bark, stripped leaves about 3/4 way up then stuck in water for couple of days, before sticking in soil.
    Recently successfully rooted Bay, which I'm very pleased about! Similar process to Rosemary...small cuttings, stripped leaves, nicked bark and straight into soil. So far have four sprouted out of about eight. Looking forward to planting out and seeing if they grown into a tree
