You can cut a bit off it now to reduce the chance of wind rock over winter, but the main pruning time is at the beginning of spring, down to about 2 foot

How do I prune leggy lavender please?

I had some in pots which had got quite pot bound, I used a pruning saw to take off an inch from the bottom of the roots and about half an inch from the sides of the roots, then repotted them. They responded by sending up new growth from the centre.

Unless they are specially treated ones for forcing inside I would just plant them and keep them outside. I just used whatever size pot they fit into. You could plant winter pansies or viola on top of them and the bulbs will just grow through. If you just put bulbs on their own I'd cover the soil with grit or gravel. If squirrels are a problem, cover with chicken wire until they are growing well
