1. Why Prune Lavender?

Unpruned lavender bushes will quickly grow woody and unattractive, so regular pruning is essential. It may lose vitality and have a straggly, unsightly appearance due to the woody stems.

The woody stems will also fracture or break more easily, and will be more vulnerable to diseases and damage from frost or water rot.

By regularly cutting back your lavender bushes, you can maintain a neat and tidy landscape, and you’ll also halt the plant’s progression toward a woody, less flexible and less resilient state.

Lavender does not grow well from old wood, so if your bush has become woody and unhealthy, you should replace it.
