Agreed, wrong compost. Draining is vital, as has been pointed out and, having watched my brother's succumb to cold winters, I kept mine in a pot. That's a huge pot by now, with feet under it so it drains better and I bring it to the back door in winter. Down south I can do that but I'd wrap it up in winter to keep it warm if I lived in colder climes.Other than the odd brown leaf here n there it's been fine for 7 years or so.
