    Exclamation

    What you will probably want to do is put mulch over them and maybe a plastic liner.


    Anyone else from there who can give some advice?

    Temps for the VFT shouldn't go below low 30's ( I am sure that they can go a little lower, but I haven't played with it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img])

    I do believe that Gerogia is below NC ( where VFT's are from )....They seem to weather the winter there, they should be fine where you are.

    What are winter temperatures like where you are?

    For people in ther South ( like me ), I really can't leave them out, although I am going to try this year. To see what happens.

    But for people in the North, they can't leave them out, it gets too cold [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    So you should be that 'happy middle' that most people envy [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    I also live in the Atlanta area and I have over 30 vft's in my outdoor bog, I have posted pics in some of the forums. The only care my vft's get is in the spring I remove the tree leaves that fell the previous fall, that's my mulch. I do check after a hard freeze and replant the newer ones that have been pushed out of the ground. I know someone in VA who mulches their plants with straw.
