Lasus Niger hibernation

Hi all, I have had my lasus Niger colony for 8 months now and all is going well ( I'm new to ant keeping by the way). I live in UK and was wondering when I should resume feeding, I know they hibernate through the winter but don't know when their hibernation stops, thank you kindly.
