Lavender requires fast draining soils so if you've had a lot of rain and the roots have remained soggy wet, they will rot. You may be able to rescue your plants if you dig them up and either raise the soil level so it drains quickly or if you plant them in containers where you can control the amount of moisture they receive. I hope you can safe them!
