Lavender

Anonymous added on April 13, 2014 | Answered

I've had a lavender hedge (French Lavender) for 3 years and this is the first time it has not come back as usual. The plants are of proper height, but after a harsh winter and a very dry spring, the plants have turned grey and looking very poorly. I usually cut the hedge back in August but I am not sure as to what I should do...cut it back, leave it and hope for the best, or just give up on it. The entire part of each plant is totally grey and looking really sad. Any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

It probably wouldn't hurt to cut it back and look for green within the stems, which should also be flexible. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/how-to-tell-if-a-plant-is-dead-and-how-to-recover-an-almost-dead-plant.htm
