Hi Peter, I'm not sure you can fool mother
nature!!! Since they are winter growing I'd personally recommned growing
them in a cool place like a basement under grow lights in the absence of a cold
greenhouse of cold frame. I have done this for 3 years now with a
reasonable level of success. I've got several that have just emerged from
dormancy or are just gettng going now along with my Dracunculus canariensis and
an Arum or two. Until we have some significant freezes I let them stay
outside and once it gets too cold I'll put them under the grow lights.
Hopefully other northern growers without the benefit of a GH will be able to
comment further.
