    It does indeed get cold around here in the winter. The only thing that I would worry about is the plants freezing solid, I heard that this will kill them?

    My plants will stay potted for dormancy. Is light an issue?
    If not I can store my plants in the garage but like dfalkanger mentioned of his area, my pots might freeze solid in Minnesotas winter (about -30*F max.) and how bad is taht for the plants?
    A cold frame would do the same here if I needed to have the "dormat" pots recieving some light.

    thanks for any info!

    I have heard that if CP's freeze solid that they will eventually die. That is a good question about the light though, I didn't even think of that. I am thinking that I might just put my plants down in my basement for dormancy, where it is a little colder, and maybe give them a little bit of artificial light once in a while, would this work?
