    You cant keep it till next november(2014)

    Try planting it in a pot of gritty compost and plant out when you're ready.

    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.
  • Yes Alan, put  it in a large pot and leave it in a corner. It will grow there happily till you are ready for it. I grow it but it is not as strong in flavour as the smaller varieties.image
