Yes me again πŸ˜‚
Thoughts on what I should do with her? Please don’t mind the others I need to cut some plants back πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
Here she is in early spring when she got a hair cut 🀣
Wow! It's massive!! Have you considered splitting it into two or three plants?
Possibly split into separate plants, or trim it back! Maybe you can do something fun to it, like Edward scissor hands πŸ˜‚
@sarahsalith I would if there was more than one root ball lol. This is a single plant
@Kaleyeeaah I agree but splitting I don’t think it’s possible as it is one plant!
@WholeRockcress it’s so big! I’d say trim :)
@Kaleyeeaah I’ll do so when it cools down so she doesn’t burn!
@WholeRockcress it looks so healthy 😍 great job!
I personally say leave her be... But also that red mulch is STUNNING!
When you say it's one root ball, is it just one stem also? Might there be multiple stems in the root ball?
@sarahsalith yes! One stem lol!
@WickedValkyrie thank you! The apt complex put it down this year 🀣
What is it? Rosemary?
@sarahsalith no it’s lavender πŸ˜ƒ
@WholeRockcress THAT. IS. INCREDIBLE!!

You could always propagate some stem cuttings to spread it out.
@sarahsalith I didn’t think you could prop them. I’ve placed them in water to make my apt smell good in the bathrooms but they just rot…I’ll definitely look into it tho!
@sarahsalith the soil must be amazing there because my marigolds were 4 feet tall until I cut them back from being too heavy lol
Try using filtered water for your props and make sure you change it every 5-7 days. Sometimes I even change mine every 3 days, depending on the size of the container. (:
@WickedValkyrie awesome! Thank you! I was trying to get a photo of the base but it’s so heavy and large I can’t lift it to get a good photo lol
Reminds me of my MIL's old rosemary bush... She planted rosemary and lavender right next to each other. They were both small and relatively the same size. A few years later the rosemary had completely taken over the garden bed. The lavender was still there, if you looked really closely, but if you didn't know what to look for, you'd never know it was there... πŸ˜‚
