lavender in a pot

The lavender that I put in a pot last year is looking a bit grey and not very healthy. Do I prune and or feed?

    hello. i have two in pots from last year that have just started growing again. if you look closely at the plant, you should see some new green growth in between the stems. have you had rain recently ?? if not, i would give them a drop of water to get them going again. they have been a lot slower to get going due to the recent colder weather. good luck

    Lavenders don’t really need feeding, they like poor soil.

    They do tend to look a bit grey at this time of year Sally.  Which variety  is it?
    If the old flower spikes are still on it you can cut those off and tidy it up, but don't cut into the old wood.
    You should start to see new growth soon depending on where you are . Can you post a photo ?
