Pruning lavender

Cutting in later seasons

Promoting growth and flowering by cutting back your plants
Whether light pruning, shaping, preservation or deadwood cutting, plants have to be cut back even in autumn and winter. In this way, for example, wild shoots are pruned back on shrubs which have been left to grow unattended. Your plants will show their gratitude in spring through good growth and many flowers.

In autumn, the organic waste bins are full to bursting. And the compost, too, is frequently overflowing with large quantities of accumulated leaves. They cannot stay on the lawn, as the grass under them can suffocate and rot. And yet we can do quite a lot of things with foliage: they can act as frost protection for garden beds, or offer beneficial small animals a pleasant refuge for the winter. Leaves are an important raw material for the formation of humus.
