i live in lancashire



I assume then that it has no instructions with it. Not clear whether you're saying it's already planted in a pot and that's how it was delivered? If you're saying it was delivered with soil and sand separately, they probably mean you to use what they've supplied. However, I know someone who grows these and she just pots them up in multi purpose compost and they do fine, though she has to bring them in during the winter. Hers are always having babies so she gives them away all the time, I've got one, but its tiny!
