I planted 3 new hidcote lavender plants this summer near a south facing wall. They had a slow start and really just started to grow well toward the late summer. They are now blooming in the last week of October! I haven't pruned them yet. Should I prune them before winter or leave them alone until they flower next year? Also, what should I do for winter protection. We do not get reliabe snow cover throughout the winter, but will get very cold temperatures from time to time (-20 to -30).

You might try putting a mulch around them once the ground has frozen. Just leave them as I don't think they are that tall right now for you and prune next spring when you see if there was any die back.
