Advice on growing lotus rhizomes?

sensovision asks: Advice on growing lotus rhizomes?
I’m growing few lotuses(nelumbo nucifera) varieties at my garden and my pond is pretty shallow so it’s probably best to take them home in winter.
Can someone advice what is good time (please tell what temperature should be outside or in water) to take lotus to winter storage and when to plant them back to pond.

I’ve just read first answer, thank you, Dan!
