Pot up plants using free-draining compost, and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outside. Once they are well grown, acclimatise French lavender plants to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before planting out on free draining soil in full sun. French lavender is slightly less hardy than it English cousin and will appreciate a sheltered position, such as the base of a warm wall.

Lavenders dislike wet ground, particularly during winter. Improve heavy soil conditions by adding coarse grit or sharp sand prior to planting. When growing French lavender in large patio containers, use a well drained soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. After planting, prune lavender plants to encourage bushy growth.

Water regularly throughout summer until lavender plants are fully established. Once established, they are reasonably drought tolerant. Immediately after flowering, prune French lavender back to within 2cm (1") of the previous year’s growth to maintain a compact, well shaped plant.
