Been a while since I posted last. Hope everyone's well.
I bought a gorgeous potted lavender at Bloom (Irish gardening exhibition) in June. We've had a very wet summer though and it's looking very sorry for itself now. I don't want to lose it and there's still a lot of live growth on it, but it also needs a prune now because the dead growth is making it look very straggly.
Any tips on how I can restore it? I know this isn't the ideal time for repotting, but I don't know what the soil quality is like at the moment so I was going to repot it and add a bit of grit (because lavenders like well drained soil), and maybe move it indoors for a while as the first of the frost is on its way. I was also going to remove the dead growth.
Any advice would be welcome - I don't want to lose it.
