can lavender bushes be cut back in April



Cut back lavender in the autumn immediately after flowering. Don't cut into the hard wood though.

It's normal to give them a light hair-cut in the autumn to remove the dead flowers, and then a slightly harder prune in spring - but never into old wood, as they don't regenerate. I think you could safely prune them now.

I did mine about 3 weeks ago and its growing back already
