This is my first year with new garden and its full of lavender but I dont know what to do with it. I had some flower last year but none this year maybe because I didnt cut it back on time (only a bit in march) - is there any hope for it - all huge plants

it's too early for it, I think. Also the cold May will certainly have delayed the onset of flowering.
