My Lavender ( in a Tub) has lost its Colour,is that normal?



They do fade,as they age,Baytree29..maybe it's time to give it a light trim may get more flowers yet..

If you mean the flowers have faded, time to cut back - trim off all flowered stems, and take no more than an inch of foliage at the same time - less if your plant is new or very small.

Then follow the instructions I gave in my previous answer - its important to take a little foliage when you cut back because lavender gets woody and leggy after 5/7 years - much sooner if you don't trim the foliage back a couple of times a year after flowering.
