    Seeing that you're in the UK, you're most likely going to have to protect them from the harsh winter. Once they go dormant, put them in an unheated garage/basement or in a fridge.

    You could just put it on a windowsill if it gets cold enough...as in under 10 degrees Celsius. They may appreciate the light they get on the windowsill. Depends on which sarracenia you have, but generally just put them in a cold place and keep them moist.

    UK actually has a pretty nice and temperate winter. Most of it is in zone 8, and the rest in zone 7, far from harsh.

    ...Just kidding! LOL. Heh, didn't know they had temperate winters since they're farther north than the US.

    They are more North but due to the ocean current from the North Atlantic drift, the winters are warmer and the summers cooler.
