    For Margaret Roberts Lavendula, you can space them about 2-3 feet apart for a hedge. For a normal planting, you would space them 4-6 feet apart and for a hedge, you would want this tighter (hence 2-3 feet).

    In order to maintain it as a hedge, you will need to prune regularly. Once a year for a taller style hedge and twice a year for a more compact hedge.

    Yes, I would do that. They will grow well in soil until it is time to plant them outdoors.

    You will need to do a pruning process called rejuvenation. These articles will explain how to do it:

    I would recommend less water and when you do water, water the seedlings from below. It sounds like the seedlings are damping off, so a little fungicide in the soil will help as well.

    High humidity makes it more susceptible to fungal disease, plus areas with high humidity tend to get a lot of rain, which they don't like. If you take steps to control the fungus, by applying fungicide to the soil, and you make sure it has excellent drainage, you should still be able to grow it.

    The soil most likely lacks phosphorus. Plants need phosphorus to bloom. Add a phosphorus rich fertilizer to the soil. This article will help as well:
