Prune lavender in summer after flowering. Cut off the old flowers and a small amount of new growth i.e. about 3cm. Do not cut into old growth as it will not regrow. You can also trim a little off the new growth in spring. It is well-worth trimming annually as you'll keep the bush nice and compact that way, ultimately giving it a longer life.
I've also just discovered Dark chocolate with Lavender. Utterly yum. Although I had to share it.
Good tips from Monty but, according to other info about lavender that I've come across it says to put lime in soil, and to plant near a rock or wall for warmth and protection from winds but Montys were in an open bed ??
I will definately be adding a load of grit to my new bed.
