Answer: Wait until mid to late spring -- when you see the beginnings of new growth -- to trim your lavender. Don't cut them back , simply prune them to shape. Lavenders get floppy for a few reasons. First, of course, is the winter beating. But they also get sloppy if they are fertilized too much, the soil is too rich, or if they are watered too much. Lavender likes it lean and dry.
