I have cut back my lambs ear to the ground about 5 weeks ago, it has not recovered and started growing yet. Is there anything I can do to help it recover. I always thought lambs ear was very reselient.



Resilient yes but cutting them down to the ground in early spring is pushing even the most resilient plant. You have removed all the newly grown foliage and the plant may, or may not, grow more.

Leave the root in the ground it may come back. Time to tidy them up is late autumn when you can remove that years growth if it is looking scruffy.
