overwintering standards

This year I have purchased gardenia, lantana, and hibiscus standards. I know that i must bring in the hibiscus for the winter, but what do I do with the lantana and gardenia to help them survive. I do not have a garage or green house. I do have an uninsulated shed. Barb, Chesapeake VA (7b)

Thanks for writing. You'll also need to bring the lantana and gardenia in and grow them as houseplants or find a greenhouse that will help you take care of them for the winter.
