Hey everyone. I have an English Lavender that I planted in my butterfly garden last year. The area gets about 4-6 hours of sun every day, but the lavender is struggling. I'm wondering if I could dig it up at this point and just move it to a sunnier spot without killing it. I was actually surprised that it overwintered here in Michigan at all. I have another one planted on the opposite side of the garden, and it seems to be doing pretty good. Will I kill it if I try to move it now? It's only about half alive, not much green growth, and it's only about 6" tall.
Thanks for any help!

Could be a drainage problem, they like well draining soil.
Sure you could move it.
Better in cool weather, but if it's dying, I'd do something.
If weather is hot, throw a light rag over it, till it recoups from being transplanted.
