Munstead Lavender Question

Posted by vlf4230 z6 Pa (My Page) on

I have 9 or 10 large Munstead Lavender plants that have done really well over the years. They are loaded with blooms both in spring and again in the fall.

Usually I dead head the spring flowers once the bees have done feasting. This year I did not get around to doing this from all the rain and a hectic schedule. Now the new branches have sprouted up around the dead flowers. If I try pruning the old flowers I'll end up loping off all the new branches. I could always go and snip one flower at a time but that would probably take me all week or so.

My question is, has anyone not deadheaded their Lavender before and still had a Fall flowering?

Thanks,

Jim

I would not go through and deadhead them individually now. You'll be there forever. Most likely you will get some blooms, but not as many as you had during past fall reblooms.
