Hi Possum , I agree with Verdun - they don't like being mollycoddled indoors - what's the coldest it would get to outside where you are?  Your plants should be pretty hardy and able to withstand a fairly hard frost, although the fact that they're in pots would make them a bit more vulnerable - I think I'd have wrapped the pots with a few layers of bubble wrap and left them outside.  

Of course, they'd be even better planted in the ground - is that not possible?

Good morning all   ((hugs)) for those who had a rotten night - I hate that .  Treat yourselves gently this morning folks - but don't forget the Yorkies (puddings, not bars )

I've been out and had my stomp and now the sun's shining on the willows on the hill and they look beautiful
