As I was shopping in a big grocery store yesterday, I found this sad little lavender pot (picture below) in the flower aisle, it is in an awful condition and the price was reduced to cents. So I immediately decided I wanted to save it and now I'm here looking for advice, since everything I read confused me even more. The tag says it's Lavandula angust. "Blue scent".
I read that lavender likes a lot of sun, but also on some threads they advised against putting it directly in the sun after buying it from a store where it was kept in the dark, but rather give it time to adapt at put it in the shadow at first. Since mine is in a really bad state and I got it from a super dark place in the store (that's probably why it's dying), should I put it in the sun, or adapt it gradually?
The soil it's planted in right now looks very, very wet and as I read, lavender doesn't like that. But I also know repotting can be quite stressful even for a healthy plant. So which is worse: keeping it in the ultra wet soil or risking repotting?
And, at last, maybe what I should've started with: is there hope at all? There's only one branch that looks healthy, all of the others are down and withering. Thanks in advance for any tips!
Here's the plant just before repotting:
