In the past have cut down, removed dirt, stored in milk crates in the cellar.Would like to cut them back, store in the pots they grew in, then put them in the cellar for the winter.  I will not be available during the winter

Usually if they are stored in soil in pots, they need an occasional watering during the winter. You would be better off to store them the way you have in past. Here are more options:
