It looks very similar to Graham Thomas, but much earlier flowering. Mine has not got buds yet.
Lavender will relish poor soil with good drainage.
I get a few usable lemons of of mine. I picked one last week. It is kept in a frost free greenhouse over winter.

Bad case of lollipopping instead of pruning.
Could you put a close up of each of the leaves. The shape of the bush is not true and does not help.
If you just want the foliage, a seed grown plant is fine. If you want lemons in this country, buy a grafted Eureka plant.
top soil could be no better than what you already have. Humus in the form of compost, well rotted FYM or composted fine bark or bracken will help any soil.
You may need to downsize the picture file for it to load.
Wonky, I think the damnation purple foxglove might be Dalmation . Spotted like the dog.
Sorry, we need a picture or at the very least, a good description.
