Does it stay or does it go?

Puning my lavender this morning I found this in a clump, almost like lichen, thing is I don't know whether it should stay or go?  Opinion please?

  • Harmless growth, but indicative of lack of airflow through the lavender stems (as is the moss).  Looking at the lavender itself, I'd replace it with a nice new young healthy bushy one.

    Thanks Hortum I try to replace some plants every year but didn't get round to it this year, my own fault then! Is it not a bit late now?

  • No, not at all. A new plant in there will do fine planted now. Plenty of time to root away and be strong for winter.
