I noticed that you did not have any response to your question and even
though I live in mild California I will try and provide you one.  I
would pot it in some damp potting soil and keep it inside for the
winter.  Give it a nice sunny window if you can and keep it watered but
not overly so.  Hopefully it will have a good root system by spring,
then knock it out of the pot and plant it in the garden after all danger
of frost is passed.
