Why do 2 of my lavenders look like this? The one on the lower 'step' immediately below the sick looking pair is thriving... Is there anything I can do to help them? Thank you

Thanks! How come the other one nearby is fine?

No idea, don't know your garden, so can't say why the microclimate or conditions might be different. One question, that is English Lavender isn't it, not French (lavender stoechas)?

English. Least I'm pretty certain. Doesn't smell like French...

I only ask because the French version has a tendency to do this at the drop of a hat, drought or no drought. Anyway, cut out the dead areas.

The 'healthy' bits are growing from the dead areas...

Hmm, well I'd have those out and replace them then, but its up to you, and now's not a great time for planting, soil's too dry and we've not yet had enough rain.
