I live in zone 10-no frost. My Spanish Lavender looks awful and bedragled. Can it be cut back - if so how far. It is 24

Lavandula (Lavender) should be trimmed back immediately after blooming to keep the plants neat and compact. If yours if over grown you can cut it back by half now and then cut it back again after it has finished blooming. It should take on a better shape once you begin trimming it back on a regular basis. Enjoy your plant!
