French lentils should be planted about 2-3 weeks before the last frost date for your region with a soil pH between 6.0 - 6.5. French lentils are happiest when they receive 6-8 hours per day of direct sunlight. When you are ready to harvest your lentils, around 80-110 days after planting, lay them out evenly to dry in the sun.
