very slow lavender
The lavender in the pic is 12 months old. Should it really be bigger by now?
I got the plants as plug plants and put them in the trough just to get them planted, thinking I would need to put them into something bigger before long.
I also planted some in a border and they are equally slow growing.
Am I expecting too much and/or is there something I can do to spur them on a bit? I had high hopes of a lovely lavender hedge, or at the very least a few nice bushes at the front of a border but at this rate I'll be waiting a long time.
I wondered about nipping the tops out....any thoughts?
