Clean Your lavender up.... Once your lavender plant has had one year to establish itself, you will need to prune your lavender once a year. The best time to prune lavender is in the spring...prune off 1/3 of the plant. This will force the lavender to create new and more growth, which will not only keep the lavender bush from going woody, but will also help to increase the amount of lavender available for harvest later in the season. gardengatenotes.com

Clean up lavender: Only remove a third of the leafy growth. Cutting too late in the season, back to bare woody stems or removing too much foliage stresses the plant and often kills it.
