    It recommends a 2 foot container which they will be lost in.

    I've found that T&M plants are always a lot smaller than expected
    I'd leave them as they until the weather improves.

    Agreed. The only problem is that if they start sprouting leaves with the warmth from being indoors then are put outside the sprouted leaves will die. I suppose I could wrap them in bubble wrap when I eventually consign them to the outdoors or just hope that a heatwave is forthcoming!

    Put them somewhere cold like the garage/GH and keep them dormant?

    I haven't got a garage and my greenhouse has no roof on! They could go in the shed I suppose.

    The shed will do - try to put them up high so the mice can't get at them - probably put a bit of bubble-wrap round them too if they were mine.

    Depends on how desperate they get - when there's other food around, no - but this time of year some tasty young bark is definitely on the menu. Also rabbits will kill newly planted trees sometimes in snowy weather by eating the bark all the way round at ground level, and don't talk to me about deer.
