Can I cut Lavender back?
Springfield, Massachusetts , United States
Hi everyone, I have three clumps of Lavender that have been in my back garden for about four years. I have never trimmed them back except for a little clean up each year. They have been blooming beautifully but I noticed at the end of the growing season last year that they were starting to look stragely. Right now they look awful. They look squashed down or like someone walked through them. Can I cut them way back to about 6 to 8 inches from the ground and if I were to do that would it make them grow back bushier ? The stems at the base of the plants are very thick and woody. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. I'm attaching a photo taken last summer.
