Laven­der re­ju­ve­na­tion

My laven­der is look­ing “woody”, with fewer leaves and flow­ers. How can I help it thrive? S. Her­bert

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - GARDEN -

“Woody” laven­der is prone to dy­ing in heat or cold. Trim the plant by a third to just above the branches with vig­or­ous leaves – if you re­move those leaves, the bush may die. Add a light scat­ter of lime (as long as you do not al­ready have al­ka­line soils, be­cause laven­der prefers a slightly al­ka­line soil). Scat­ter fer­tiliser and water well.
