The advice which has been posted so far is good, but let me add one more
very important point, important to those of us in the summer-wet east. As
soon as the foliage dies down naturally, keep the plant dry until late fall.

That at any rate is what I did with the seedling I got from from John
Lonsdale) last year.

This plant spent the winter in a cold frame - not so much for cold
protection as to enable me to regulate the water. In this its second season
here it's doing well.
