London, United Kingdom
This year my lavender (officinalis) is growing on very long stalks in all directions - not at all the ordered border I'd planned. Last year it was all uniform length, relatively short and typically lavender-ish (!) growing straight up with lots of stalks. As you can see from the photo it looks really unruly. I gave it a level chop in early winter. Can anyone explain why this has happened? Can I cut it back now and still get flowers this summer?
