Default Re: Helens hybrid - will it fruit in a heated polytunnel?

Thats going to be tough size wise, rajapuri is cold hardy to zone 7b, Dwarf Orinoco is a bit more so, but the problem is that even though they are dwarf, the leaves extend much farther than the pstem and potentially up into the ceiling. I would probably try them in a container semi dormant with no leaves, and then take them back outside in the spring. I dont know if you have what is called a crawl space under your homes there, but any place that stays cooler and above freezing is a good place to store orinoco pstems till spring bare root. I store 10 foot tall orinoco pstems under my house in winter for 6 months, drop them in a hole in spring, and they are leafed out in a month and a half.
