Q.Pruning Lavender

Zone 19350 | Anonymous added on April 18, 2019 | Answered

The instructions say “…prune one-third of the plant.”. Request clarification if this means;

1) Prune each stem 1/3 of its length.


2) Prune 1/3 of all stems back to their base.

Thank you,

This can, actually, mean either! You can prune 1/3 of the length of the entire plant, or you can choose to take out 1/3 of the plant by limbs. This will be your preference.
