Fungal disease in late March

Last year my garden was full of flowers in good conditions.I had only black spots in Wild Rose, treated with natural products , I washed all roots, new land and planted in the soil. Now, Early April, it seems more plants are like full of earth around stems and leaves , the Lavender in a pot , that was nice and big, is a ruin , also Chrysanthemums and 1 plant of Rosemary.. All was nice and strong full of flowers it seems to be ready to die ..its a fungus ? 1/could be treated before root infection? 2/It is a fungus problem this hot weather year? 3/Are they invasive spores of a single plant?

Lavender does not like a pot.  The rose and other plants may not have suitable soil conditions, possibly too wet.

Roses tend to get fungus disease.
