You could read & watch Boob toob until you drop & still over wintering a plant is simple.Were they kept in the dark or given light. that is something I might try with pepper or some forms tomatoes. I could put them under my off grade house.
These are dwarf Tamarillo's at 8' covered with flowers & small fruit in October. Just about to get hit by a frost.
Out of 5 trees none made it through winter, except the two I had in 3 gallon buckets they went into the basement.
Like the peppers I cut them back & watered them well for the last time. We set them out in March for the warm days then used fertilizer when they sprouted out.
The 2 Tamarillos are huge today covered with fruit that will ripen this season. You can over winter any perennial plant.
