When the bees stop visiting the lavender, we know it is time to prune it down into its mounds. We leave a certain percentage for the bees and other pollinators: now it is completely bloomed out. Starting today and over the next month, each plant will get a careful shaping and good watering to help it push new growth and then harden off before frost. The trimmed stems help mulch between plants and discourage weeds.
