    I did, but it didn't make it through the summer -- maybe something to do with 100F???

    Garages are not the best place to keep plants as there is usually no light. Bring indoors before a frost and if they stay inside for long they need a bright window location. They will need a little watering over the winter, but not much. You don't want the soil to be soggy. Roots need air too.

    True, but my garage has two huge windows on the west side so it gets lots of afternoon sun :thumb:

    I have a car port... and a basement w/ light.

    I don't know when to cut it back and how far back to cut it. do I cut all the limbs off or what? do I have to cover it with plastic or something too?

    Does it actually freeze in Seatle?

    Plastic is not good for shielding plants. If you have to cover for protection, use some kind of cloth(burlap etc.).

    Indoor lights are not sufficient unless you have some grow lights(flourscents need to be nearly touching the top of the plant).

    I probably wouldn't cut it back until Late November or whenever it starts looking spindly. Leave a few nodes(buds) on each stalk.
