Harvesting Your Lavender
Begin by harvesting the flowers when they are in bloom, but before they begin to wilt. Cut the stems just above the foliage, leaving some stem to avoid damaging the plant.
Prune lavender annually to maintain its shape and promote healthy growth. In early spring, trim back the previous year's growth by one-third, cutting just above a set of leaves.
Remove any dead or damaged branches as they appear. This will encourage new growth and keep your lavender looking healthy and vibrant. With these simple steps, you'll be able to enjoy your beautiful and fragrant lavender plants for years to come!
