Where are you rh? 

Sequoias aren't wild in the UK (where most of us are based) and there's little enough wild/native planting left here. Sequoias and other alien species wouldn't be a good addition to our nature, we need native trees to support our diminishing native wildlife.

Nothing has eaten mine yet apart from lily beetles a few years ago. Perhaps the local pheasants prefer other plants

I think these are all evergreen aren't they? so not truly dormant. I have no experience of this situation, I grow my plants hard. My gut feeling is they'll struggle with high temperature and low light levels.

. Do you think they can freeze in just 24 hours when it's around +5?

See original post

 nothing freezes at +5C, freezing point is 0C

It's a difficult decision to make when plants have been grown soft indoors. It's not an easy time of year for hardening off. I'd put them outside on warmish days for a week or 4, then outside at night if it's not freezing. Eventually they'll be hardened off, you'll see a change in appearance, not so soft and green
