cold to warm

I have been doing an interesting (experiment ?) for the last several years. In
preparation to spending the winter in the very south west of South Carolina (
Hilton Head Is.), and living in Waterloo Ont. Zone 5, I refrigerate, November
1st, 3 or 4 hosta or enough to divide into 20x 3 divisions once I arrive in SC
Jan 2nd at which time I divide and pot and have 20 wonderful plants by the
time I return home April 1st. I protect these plants (indoors) and dont put
outside until June 1st to avoid any chance of a frost. June in Waterloo is
cooler than April in SC but they are usually showing signs of dormancy within
one week.?????
