Lavender plugs

Hi all. I'm a newbie to this planting game and have just moved house which has a small south facing patio and a small back garden. I have just been bought 24 lavender plugs and I'm not sure how to look after them. My plan is to have them in pots but I'm not sure how 1 plug ends up. Can I pot 12 per big pot or do I need to do some prep first. Please note I'm in rented accommodation so want these to be portable if I move out and theres no option of a green house. Thank you all so much for any advice.

    They will be tiny at the moment, so pot on into 7 cm pots of free draining gritty compost. If you can only get multipurpose compost, add some extra horticultural grit. Keep in a protected place over winter. A cold frame or cold greenhouse if you have one, or up against the house wall. Inside the house will be too warm.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
