When do you cut back... lavender, thmye, irises

15 years ago

I hate cutting plants back -- it just seems like it's sending the wrong message to the gardening gods.

But some things, like the irises, are looking mighty peaked in this mid-August heat. And my lavender and thyme have been almost too succesful since sown two years ago -- there are long bare "trunks" where they grow over each other and themselves.

When do you, or do you cut these back in the Ohio area?
