Lavender

I have 3 lavender plants in my garden & they are covered in blooms and look absolutely wonderful, however, they are getting really tall & a bit spindly looking.

I'm wanting to trim them down once they finish blooming. My understanding is that lavender blooms all summer long, so I guess I should wait to trim until fall? Or does anyone have any other tips?

I'd hate to cut it too soon in the year & not have blooms as long as I could have.

I believe there are different varieties of lavender. I think yours may be the French variety. Mine is Spanish...here's a pic...

I bought my lavender last June or July and it was about 8" tall. It's now about 18 - 20"! It's grown like crazy!
