When to prune French lavender? Hi, I planted French Lavender a few years ago. I was just unsure when to prune it? I had a look at the plant labels of several types of French Lavender in my local garden centre. Some said to prune in early spring, others said to prune late summer/autumn. Some I'm rather confused? Thanks for any advice.

you can do either really. in spring the prunings will root easily where as I find they are less successful done now.
either way don't prune into old wood as the bare stems rarely regrow from there. just a light trim is needed.

Many thanks for the advice. I spent 2-3 hours yesterday deadheading the entire lavender hedge, it was quite backbreaing work! I'll probably leave the full pruning regime until next Spring then just to be on the safe side.
