what do you mean when you say cutting grown? For instance, licorice plant... can I just cut it and stick it in the soil? How about w/ lanvender, rosemary?

Many perennials and woody plants can be propagated by tip or root cuttings -- as well as by seed. The exact procedure and timing for cuttings would vary somewhat depending on the plant in question. The new plant grown from a cutting is essentially identical to the parent, so all of the parent's special characteristics are present in the new plant. That is why cuttings are sometimes preferred over seed grown plants.
