P.S. please let us know how you get on with your lavender plants and your lovely garden in general. We are all hoping you can get them back to splendid health and beauty.
Just looked at my lavender bushes outside the front fence, they look awful; only bits of them alive. I think they might have to go, also the horizontal Juniper.
Artjak i don't find lavender is particularly long lived. Luckily mine seed into the gravel drive and I get some free plants should I wish to replace them. Perhaps they are happier in the gravel!!
Lose your lavender and juniper and gain an opportunity to do something new ... remember that great idea you had the other day... now you can go for it.
Woodgreen WB I agree entirely
