The nice (and interesting) people I met were from Wisconsin! I didn't know they have regular bouts of humidity there and of course, not having that sort of toughness, I was intrigued. The equivalent tough plant? It's definitely lavender. Here I spell out my top trick to keeping a wonderful patch in your garden.
It’s always a bit more difficult and it takes much longer to recover but you can, in fact, prune back the wood as well. (It’s always worth the gamble than suffering seeing too much wood or having your lavender too large for your liking.) Prune away in the fall then have an extra dose of patience in the spring. Garden On!
Thank you so much for the video! What would you recommend I do for a lavender plant that wasn't pruned correctly and has the woody stocks? Can I prune it way back in the fall? Or will it always have the woody stocks now? I always appreciate your tips and tricks!! Best, Jade
Always good tips, Jon, especially on lavender. As a transplant from Pennsylvania, I can tell you no one does well in humidity!
How far back should we prune the lavender after blooming? Or is fall a better time?
Great information! Thanks
