But here's food for thought. Around here, nurseries keep plants in pots for years and years outside. Not even in greenhouses. Only the more sensitive plants are kept in greenhouses. Most of them, including lilacs, are kept in pots outdoors all winter long. And they come back just fine the next spring and then they sell the plants to guys like me.

It's probably safe to heel it in. But I think it would likely survive in the pot just fine too.
we "heeled in" (never heard that term before) all of the plants when I worked at a nursery. If we don't, in the spring a lot of plants will have frost burn (where a section of the plant is dead)

Ive taken advantage of the world market and started a new business. We are building bombs in the shape of prayer blankets for our middle eastern customers. Business couldnt be better. The prophets are going through the roof!!
