troublesome lavender

saldaisy asked 11 years ago

My lavender of about 6 years is gone “all over the place”. It smells nice in Summer but the shape doesn’t vaguely resemble a circle and there’s also tall grass growing up throughit. Is it time to dig it up and replant a new one or is there something I can do to save it?

Lavender naturally tends to get a bit straggly as it ages. It is clipped back after flowering, it stays tighter and lasts longer.

The existing plants need to be replaced.
