My lavender (bee one) bush has been magnificent in it's tub & is watered & fed regularly but is now looking pale, faded & tired. Do I cut the heads off to encourage new growth or has it finished for this year?



Trim over with the shears or secateurs, removing all flowered growths plus about an inch of the leafy growth.

Dry your lavendar by hanging upside down inside a paper bag. It is wonderful used in a basket as dried flowers (pack them until you can get no more in) or take the flowers off the stalks and use it for pot pourri. It keeps flies away.
