I have a lavender in a pot which I bought three weeks ago,the leaves seem to droop down and very few are upright with buds on,is this ok or should I be doing something to help it

    I think i'd be greedy if I had that, I'd bury it with the crown below soil level. Doing so would encourage all the lax growth to root into the surrounding soil- new free plants after a while.

    You can trim it back, but DONT cut into the old wood. But for me it's been neglected by the retailer, and I'd use it for cuttings.
