THE PLANT, INSTEAD OF UPRIGHT, HAS GROWN LIKE A "SAUCER", SPREAD ITS "BRANCHES" OUTWARDS AND A LOT OF THE FLOWERS SEEM TO HAVE FADED, (OR AT LEAST DIED??). WHAT CAN I DO TO SAVE THIS PLANT PLEASE? IT IS IN CLAY SOIL BUT THE THREE OTHER LAVENDERS SEEM OKAY. IT GETS PLENTY OF SUN, IS PLANTED NEXT TO A ROSE BUSH, MAYBE IT DOES NOT LIKE THIS COMPANY. I WOULD BE MOST GRATEFUL IF YOU COULD HELP ME BRING THIS LAVENDER BACK TO PROPER LIFE. MANY THANKS.

Thank you for sending us your gardening question. Lavender appreciates hot, dry areas and needs well draining soil. If you have clay soil, your lavender may not be draining well enough. You may wish to amend your soil to make it more hospitable to your lavender.
