dyzzypyxxy said:Hi Tony, and welcome. I'm in Florida so a little more similar climate to yours here. I very seldom can grow lavender through the summer here. It really hates the humidity and high heat, night and day. They do fine for me from fall through to spring when it is cooler and drier. But in summer they generally develop root rot from staying moist all the time in the humidity, and just give up. I've lived here 14 years and only once has a lavender made it through a summer. It died the next year.
As Sue suggested, it might do better indoors, if you are running a/c but you would need to let it grow in a sunny window because they need lots of sun. Most herbs from the Mediterranean region have similar needs - drier air, letting the roots dry a bit between waterings (use a coarse, well draining medium) and sun.
I can't see the picture clearly enough but I wonder if it could be mealy bugs. You could look them up on Google and compare with what you are seeing.
You can cut lavender back and make it start over when it gets too ugly at the base, but if you're waiting for flowers then you wouldn't want to do that just yet. I periodically do that with mine. Do you know which species/cultivar of lavender you have?
