I live in Michigan (zone 5b) and I would like to keep two potted spruces, about 4-5 feet tall, flanking my entry door until spring time when I can plant them.
Does anyone know if they will tolerate being on a 8 foot deep wrap-around covered porch in zone 5b for the winter?
Does anyone know what kind of care they will need?

I sure appreciate your help! :)

I'm no expert, but my opinion is this will work. Keep them protected from wind as much as you can. water only if dry, and only when temps are above freezing.
