How do you over winter this one...!!

Nicely put Camillia!
Crissue - some people have got them through the winter outdoors, but it is very much the luck of the draw there. I'll just stick it in the garage - that should be enough. Next spring I'll do a couple of divisions and then try them outdoors next winter.
