Wish I could give you some mint cuttings. I'm growing peppermint, spearmint, corsican mint, and strawberry mint in containers. Also lemon balm and lemon verbena, both great for starting new plants with cuttings or dividing the rootball.
Lavender is such a tricky one to grow, and it's very slow and temperamental about maintaining perfect moisture and light once it sprouts. I did manage to get one seedling to survive a few years ago. Now the plant is so strong, I probably couldn't kill it with a lawnmower. I clip it down often into the shape of a bonsai bush.
