Lavender 'Grosso' and transplanting

Hope I didn't kill it!
The weekend before last I dug up and switched around the Catmint and Lavender 'Grosso'. Right afterwards, I found some gardenweb threads advising not to attempt to move an established Lavender because this would surely kill it! The 'Grosso' was just now coming into it's 3rd year so that probably constitutes an established plant. I got as much as the original taproot as I could but I know I didn't get it all. Anyways the very next day I went out and took 4 cuttings just in case.
What has been your experience moving one that is established?

I don't know about 'Grosso', but I have a few lavenders, including 'Munstead' that I've moved a few times and are all ok. I moved them later in the season, though, so I don't know if that makes a difference.

RE: Lavender 'Grosso' and transplanting

Well I guess I shall see! I moved a few Munstead around too last spring but just going into their 2nd year. They all survived and even bloomed.
The cutting are rooting so if it survives I'll have 5 plants if not 4 will do LOL!
