On siting - make sure it is not in a windy spot - they hate it!
Not sure about the best pot - but my gut feel would say terracotta - more stable, looks better, stops the roots cooking in the summer. Good luck with it, they are lovely little trees ! I have a couple of big ones, and a whole set i am nurturing from baby plants from an offer a few years ago. I was advised (nursery lady at hampton court flower show) to only pot them on a pot size at a time, as they try to put on enough root growth every year to fill their pot - and if the new pot is much bigger than the old, they sometimes wear themselves out with the effort
