Too late to prune?

I have a one year old garden that has grown tremendously. Is it too late to prune back the lavender, cone flowers, jasmine etc. or should I wait to the spring? I live in Sutton, Dublin so we don't get so much frost. 261120161, , Posted: 26/11/2016

Do not be in a hurry to cut back seedheads as they can be very decorative in winter. Remove any messy kinds now and trim the rest if necessary in late winter.

Lavender can be trimmed after flowering.
