Q When’s the best time to prune our laven­der bushes?

Garden Answers (UK) - - Problems Solved - ROSE­MARY & CLIVE WIL­SON, WOR­THING, WEST SUS­SEX

A English laven­der (L. an­gus­ti­fo­lia) should be pruned lit­tle and of­ten to keep it neat and healthy. This avoids plants be­com­ing strag­gly and bare at the base. So, lightly trim plants af­ter flow­er­ing and again in spring, in March or April, to keep them look­ing good. Avoid cut­ting back into leaf­less ‘woody’ stems.
