Hmmm, that doesn't sound good.  You do water it occasionally don't you?

Is your garden well-drained?  Lavender hate their roots being cold and damp - they can cope with cold roots but the combination of both will finish them off.

Dig plenty of horticultural grit into the soil and then heap the planting area into a ridge or heap and plant on top of that so that the lavender is never sitting in a puddle.

I saw my first orange tip of this spring on some Jack by the Hedge while out for a walk a few weeks ago   I've got lots of Hesperis in the garden but no signs of orange tips here - I shall endeavour to grow Jack by the Hedge as well.

Someone on here will tell you 

It won't seem 5 minutes before she's wanting a cool seating area behind a bamboo screen where she can hang out with her pals and play music that makes you feel old
