2015 - Aug. 02. No perceptible growth on this one. I'm about to pot it in a pot that will be buried in my veggie garden for the winter and sunk into the trough for the summer. That will avoid disturbing the roots twice each year.

2016 update. Still growing really slowly for me. But I now keep it in a pot and sink the pot into the trough or the veggie garden for winter, thus not disturbing the roots.
