Refrain from watering to allow the foliage to die down naturally, and then snip this away at compost level during winter. Come spring I just start watering the pot again, and once shoots emerge I start giving a liquid feed occasionally too. No, I don't remove it from its compost or do anything complicated, but it appears to thrive.
Can I do what you do with your lilies - let the soil dry out, let it die down, and leave it in the dry compost to overwinter? Or should I dig it out of the pot and store it with my dahlia tubers? Here in Sheffield, whichever way I store it I will have to put it in a frost free environment because it could be too cold outside in the winter.
