Storing Potted Perennials for winter
How can I store potted Perennials for the winter in Lower New York. I am moving in January, so I dug up many of my favorites and potted them to take to the new house. But I do not know what to do with them once the cold weather comes. (I cannot believe it is still warm and its December). Should I store them in a shed or garage, or do they need sunlight when they are dormant. I'm afraid to leave them outside in the dead of winter thinking they will freeze solid.
Also, my hosta are very large and wont fit into pots even after division. Can I divide them and store them without re-potting them, or should I wrap them in burlap with topsoil?
I hope someone out there has a suggestion. Thanks
