My favorite way to plant these is in strawberry pots--the kind of pot with holes up the whole vertical sides of the pot. They do great, and some years I've even had them get so big that they almost completely cover the planter.
I move them inside or into the garage in the winter, water occasionally, and plunk them outside the next spring. They recover quickly and even sometimes grow 'roosters'--the long shoots with flowers.
In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.
