    You would have to do like WildBill, in Connecticut, and heavily mulch them. But then again, Bill has a whole mess of plants to deal with. There are easier approaches for a small amount of plants.

    good point..
    but you could also not post advice that applies only to your climate, if you dont know where the person lives..or at least say "if you live in zone 7 or higher, then you could do this..."

    ive had my plants go through 4F freezes for over a week and still come back in the following spring...
    though now i generally place them in the shed if it drops below 20 or so for an extended period of time....
