yes Suey after 2011 winter when I lost couple,I now bring them into greenhouse and shed.Then I just put some straw into crown and water every three weeks or so.Less stressful than worrying about them.It was the ice staying in the crown that killed the young growth.It rotted in the centre.

There is not much hope when plants start rotting is there,like you say a lot less stressful when you they are indoors.
