I am in 6"c"/ 7a in central Virginia, and my Bay is an outdoor summer
plant only. It's pot comes in for the winter. I also blanket my
rosemary plants when the weather turns very cold with winds. I lose my
pastured figs, the potted ones are okay because they stay in an unheated
garage for the winter weather.
