Will this work?

I have inherited a big concrete patio that I try to populate as well as I can with furniture and pots. At the divide between it and the grass is this wall with a trough down it’s center. The trough is about 5 inches wide, and 3-4 inches deep.
I was wondering, since lavender is pretty good at surviving in most situations, would it work if I took out the stones, added soil, compost, etc, and planted it with Lavender?
Anyone out there have similar areas where they have come up with good solutions, do you think lavender would work? Long term I’d like to work towards a cottage garden type theme in the garden as a whole.

Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
There are other alpine plants that need little or no soil.
Or maybe houseleeks in the gravel and a small metal (plastic?) push in fence to stop anyone stepping over?
