Pot them up and keep them frost free over the winter

Ok thanks Aalice.....I thought perhaps i could pot them in a gritty mix and keep them outdoors in a sheltered spot....Would they be ok in a cold bright shed, if i keep them in dry compost?...:>)

Yes long as they are frost free.....but...sheds are not always frost free....wrap in fleece....just in case....
I have some in the ground....well mulched and some in pots in cold frame...
