I'd suggest leaving it until its dormant, thats november to march and during a mild spell.

is its new home in a sheltered spot

My garden is quite open, especially to the north and east so personally I grow cuttings on into sturdy plants first, I over winter in a (hopefully) frost free greenhouse

But if you have a sheltered spot then you could plant it out as soon as its dormant and the weather mild
keep it well watered next year

Hi there
thanks for the great advice, the spot i have for it is in between a shed and a path, its to cover a bare corner and it does get a bit of shade, i will take your advice and keep it in a cold greenhouse and plant out next spring. I'm a competent gardener but lack confidence in matters that i haven't encountered before, so your advice has been a boon to me
