    I've never put a thermometer in the leaves with my Sarrs & VFTs during the winter, so don't know how cold they get. But they're definitely frozen solid for a long time.

    I moved my mini-bogs into the garage here in Colorado this afternoon. I plan on setting them back outside in a couple of days when it warms up into the 70's again. If your plants in Utah are like mine here in CO, they are already going dormant. I will most likely move the planters in and out of the garage for the next few weeks before leaving them there for the winter sometime next month.

    I've taken buckets of minibogs to the attic, right at a window. No matter how cold it gets outside, the attic is drawing enough heat from the apartment to keep them from freezing. And the window allows them to respond to the changes in photoperiod. The plants wake up on their own in late February, into March.
