Ok i live in northern Kentucky(zone 6) and we can get some pretty harsh winters. i am hoping to get a large S. Flava soon(late B-day present) and i have virtually no experience with dormancy. i have seen some tactics of other members and i came acroos the process of over wintering. what is it? will it keep my plants alive? how do i do it? and are there any other ways you can think of for dormancy. i tried the fridge technique last year on two VFTs and they both rotted so i dont want to try it again. please help!
