Excellent, is it ok to do so at this time of year? I have a rosemary bush in the same planter that is getting quite big, perhaps I can do both at once.
yep and yep
as a bonus any soft bits that get trimmed are tasty or might root in a sandy compost with a plastic bag to keep em moist for the first week or so .
I think you can prune back to woody stems (in summer) with English lavender - but not with French lavender. If you hard prune French lavender you'll kill it.
With thyme - I dug the whole thing up and reburied it almost completely in a deeper hole.
||im fairly sure all the lavenders i have maintained are english ones.|
||All the woody cuttings make nice kebab sticks too.|
||What's the difference between a French and an English lavender then?|
||French has a different shaped flower and also generally has a wider, softer leaf. It's also less hardy.|
||Thankyou. Guessing mine is Portuguese lavender|
