Hi, I moved in April and inherited a lovely lavender. This is the first time I've had a lavender and reading up on it I should have pruned it in August or September. The reason I didn't prune earlier is because it was still attracting bees up to October and time had just run away from me since! Is it too late to prune it back now?



hi if has finished flowering then you can give a trim just take off the ends about two inches down but do not cut into the old wood good luck.

I agree. Since we've been having an extended season of nice weather, it's not too late to prune.

I've always left mine over the winter then pruned it in early spring. Seems to have done okay.
