    I’ve had Metalica in the ground for a couple of years and it’s not good news. They even survived last winter with -5 here (Northwest UK) but they came back late and have struggled to put on size. They are in an area with Pink China and Gaolgongensis which cope fine of course. If you are going to risk it this year I’d say make sure you have a back up! I’m chopping mine and storing as soon as we hit 2.
