thermometer..and right now it's 20*C during our
winters with alot of snow and rain...temps dip to -15C
and hang there with the occasional storm wind dropping
them to -35*C...our frost line is around 3-4 ft down
depending on the part of the state your in and the

ground here come december-january..in feb we get
warming of-10 to 0* C but the soil stays frozen til

tulips lost even crocus killed..

and indoors...lol...but I shall leave them out longer
til hard frost to chill them down furhter as I've been
bringing them in in Sept. with most other things maybe
late as oct when they threaten the first frost of 0*C.
th'x again all...this may just get them growing better
