I received the pomegranate cultivar 'Wonderful' today which is already 
trained into a small tree with a trunk of about 30 inches.  It's my aim to 
grow it in a very large container and put it into the cold garage during the 
winter.  I live in Zone 4b, and my garage doesn't go below about 20F even on 
those -15 to -20F nights.

My questions:
Will it have enough dormancy in the garage?

Would I be better off planting it in the ground in a very sheltered spot and 
burying it in mulch every winter?

This is my first experience with pomegranates, but I'm trying because they 
have such attractive flowers and interesting fruit.
