so sorry about the lack of links to the TRE Nursery at the U of MN site, I
also have a tough time digging through the University's web sites,but here
are a few sites (papers) written about overwintering that might help.
I wasn't able to find a link to TRE Nursery, do you
have a more direct one? I did bookmark the extension
page, it's got a lot of good information.

When I said that you would do fine, I meant with whatever you tried. This is
partly practical, partly my philosophy. I guess I feel that gardening is
something that we all love so much, enjoy so much, and depend upon, but we
will never be able to control all of the conditions. It's just that lack of
control that makes every year more exciting, more beautiful and rewarding.I
study the science of it all and there are still so many questions...
When you say what I've got "should do fine", do you
mean in the basement or stored outside?
Hope that helps, and I wish you the best as this season winds down and the
next one approaches.
