comment

@tina I mulch mine and keep them in some survive but not as good as the ones I do from cuttings though depends how harsh winter is but worth taking cuttings and putting in greenhouse or window cill over winter seem to take ok if you take late summer early autumn 👍

comment
mikethegardener

@Keely @tina @justin If you're somewhere where cold & wet winters are likely then yes protection is definately better as a safeguard. Keely's right though, cuttings will perform better than those you try & protect as they have more vigour. Shout if you need anymore help Tina...!😊😊😊
