Answer: Planting the container in the ground would provide cooler temperatures for the roots and maintain a more even soil moisture. Lavender insists upon good drainage and doesn't like wet roots, but as new plants are getting established they generally need moist soil for roots to thrive. And then sometimes, a plant just isn't healthy enough to make it and lavender can be temperamental. Consider yourself a success for getting one to thrive!
