Well, we had a few nights with temps in the upper 30s, low 40s and the tips of
some leaves got nipped.  They will go dormant if there is no light present.  I
believe a 45F root cellar would be just fine, without benefit of first exposing
to a light freeze.

The thought of digging those gigantic brugs out is killing my body!
