Those lavenders look beyond rescuing to me Detta, I'd dig them up and plant new ones - remember to keep them pruned so that they don't get leggy.

Plant your plugs and let them grow and flower next year. When they have finished flowering cut off the first 6 inches of growth just repeat that every year. After about 6 years they will look a bit woody at the base, you then need to replace them again either by buying more plugs or by taking cuttings.
