    It's possible only if the temperature in which you're storing them doesn't consistently fall below freezing. If it's freezing outdoors and the temp in your shed maintains about 10 degrees (Fahrenheit) above freezing it should be OK to let them go dormant in there - but if they aren't getting any light in there it's not good for them obviously (I don't imagine you have a power source in the shed to run fluorescents on an 8 hour timer), and I imagine it could shorten the life span, but it could work as long as your temperature is OK. And of course keep them watered as always.

    There tends to be a lot of trial and error involved for first time growers.

    The end of it is you should look up info on VFT's dormancy and try to mimmick those conditions as closely as possible. You've got plenty of time to worry about it; winter's a long way off.

    check the weather in the places where the plants grow. that should be of some help, because you would know the temps in where they grow naturally.
