Lavender Pruning


How to prune Lavender

Pruning is necessary for the development and protection of our plants. Many farmers cut the flowering stems when the first buds open during the first growing season, so as to help the plants develop. After this, we can say that lavender plants need pruning once a year. Some very experienced farmers prune their plants during spring, but late summer or early autumn pruning (after harvest) is more common. Especially when we grow lavender for essential oil, in most cases we harvest only the flowering tops, and we leave the stems untouched. In this case, after the harvest we must prune every lavender plant to half of its size (leaving 1/3 of each year’s growth), so as to encourage new growth. Pruning woody parts of the plants must be avoided.
