No. It just comes in a little yellow plastic bottle with a sharp pointy bit at the top. I bought some yesterday, but an organic one. Hth!

Don't forget Mookins, when you've taken off the bottom leaves, and wet the end of the stalk, dip into the powder and plant. But water the compost first before you put the stalk in, otherwise you'll wash the powder off. I then pop those little plastic bags on top til I see new growth appearing. Have fun!

also quite a good idea to keep plastic bottles, cut them in half and use them as mini-propagators until the cuttings are established. Careful not to overwater - I have lost so many by doing that - especially lavendar.
