Hi Lisa35, welcome to GoY.....

The best position is west facing as it will then be sheltered from the early morning sun which will affect the frosted buds.
Prefers acid soil so when you've dug the planting hole, add lots of ericacious compost around the root ball.

Take a look at the GoYpedia pages - there's lot of pics, info and advice on there.
