The leaves will still freeze off. I find it easiest then to just lift the
tubers or rhizomes and store in the basement to get April-May shoot
production/planting. If I don't mind June-July first leaf appearance for
such things as Colocasia,Balla, and Canna, I'll cover with a foot of CURLY
dry fallen oak leaves and then six inches of cow manure and a frosting of
high nitrogen fertilizer granules.

Hello! Well, on my quest to have the perfect growing environment for my
plants I have been looking into heating cables which can heat tables also
the ground outside to make partially hardy plants make it threw the winter.
As I have been searching I have found a very interesting link with an
unusual heating cable for sell. This product may have some very interesting
uses. It is not a wire but some other material. I have been talking to a
at this site for a week or two. he is helping me design my heated tables
from the way it sounds it should work out well. Each table has a heated
ran threw them with plastic on top and a capillary mat which stays moist on
top. The temps on the table stay at 80 or a bit higher.

Here is the website I think a few may find this product interesting and it
could be used for a number of things.  Not to mention its only$00.02 a foot
and is very low watts.
