Thanks very much -I shall have a read @lamaisonbleueoleron and that's funny, because I bought them from Downderry! (Was trying to emulate their beautiful display at Hampton Court one year!) 👍🏼

Three times a year Steve?! @lamaisonbleueoleron no wonder mine are looking a bit floppy! I shall put this into action - it won't take me three hours - there's only about 30' of it!

😊😂 I've now moved on to a electric sheers which save time unless it needs recharging then can take another day if I get the timing wrong 😱🙈 Rachel, if you haven't done much pruning to them just cut back to this years grow don't cut back to the hard wood they don't like it! I like to keep them in check, don't want them getting to leggy plus I'm on the coast not the best please for growing lavender because of the humidity!
