Lavender bush

Posted: 16/08/2014 at 14:29

I have an enormous lavender bush which flowers profusely each year - it is in excess of 10 years and is very woody at the base.  Each year I cut it back to the bottom of the flower stems.  If I were to cut it right back to the roots after flowering this year, would it re-grow?  The bush is in a very confined area but it attracts so many bees that I would hate to kill it off.  I also love the lavender flowers.  Your advice please!

What is this plant/shrub?

Thanks Dovefromabove - I'll have another look at Crocus.

We were staying at the Cavendish - our eldest son treated us for Christmas - it was very nice.  Walked for miles ... my feet have yet to recover!!

What a lovely idea Fluffy Cloud!

KEF - yours looks amazing!

I've just phoned my local garden centre and they have just sold the last two.  I would rather buy them at a nursery or garden centre but if all fails, is Crocus a good option?

Again - thanks to all for your help and enthusiasm

Had a lovely break in London this weekend and was enchanted by the fragrance of this shrub growing near Tower Bridge.  Would love to know what it is - any ideas please?
