Fungi growing around your Lavender can indicate your plant is not receiving enough sunlight and with both root rot and the fungi, I would say you are over watering or your soil is poorly draining.
Make sure you are not overwatering your plants.
You may need to transplant your Lavender to a location that is better suited.
