In the autumn, cut the flower spikes back to the wood stem or at least 1/3 of the new seasons growth.
How to care for Lavender
Lavender loves to be in the sun.
Always make sure there are green leaves left on your Lavender after pruning back in the autumn.
In the first year of planting, water regularly. Once established, Lavender is drought tolerant until its buds have formed.
Lavender prefers low quality soil. Add compost just once a year in the spring.
Ensure soll is well drained. Lavender doesn't like to be soggy.
