everything I read about pruning lavender hidcote says to do it in August. However mine did not flower till August and are still flowering now, so when should I prune?



Hi, welcome to GoY, prune in early to mid spring, cuttingback to within half an inch of last years growth, Derek.

I was hoping to cut them back by a third, will spring be to late to do this

Hi, it's alright to cut them back by a third, as long as that doesn't involve cutting into old wood, spring is not too late, Derek.
