Hi hollie hock, I don't think that's necessary. My neighbour has a dark knight and it's never suffered, even in the coldest winter.
I've got a white, pink, purple and blue Buzz and have planted them as a group in the garden. Will prune them around April. We can get down to -20°C, usually in February, so hope they survive.
Not just May, but last year as well!
Sounds like a lot of hard work to me. Why not make raised beds, you can make them any shape/hight/depth you want, order topsoil to fill them.
I agree Verdun and second the motion, G'day Forkers!

Waterbutts, I guess you learnt to say "chuchichäschtli"!
