Lavender. Does this flower say I'm finished flowering or is it just not happy? If it has finished flowering do I just the stems off back down to bushy crown? If it's not happy what can I do to make it happy! Many thanks :)




It's finished flowering. I walk past two lovely bushes to my local corner shop and they look the same. Mind you I hope they don't stand in water too often, they are quite used to hot dry conditions.

If you cut the flowering stems back now it looks as though there will still be enough flowers to dry for lavender bags of pot pourri.

Cammomile- I have been away and everything needed a good soak. Now I know it's not poorly but just finished flowering I will let it dry out. Thanks.

Take a half inch to an inch of foliage when you clip the flowering stems off, helps to stave of the inevitable legginess they develop.
