Lavender does prefer full sun, but care needs to make sure that the soil is moist but not soggy. The top inch or so should dry out slightly between waterings. Depending on the temperatures, wind, and type of pot, you may need to water twice a day.

Give the pot a bit more shade and check the moisture carefully.
