Hello, thank you for the guidance how to take red robin's cuttings. Can I leave the pot with the plastic back in the greenhouse from now - August over the winter? Also how often I need to water it and how much? Many thanks



If its rooted you should take the plastic off. Probably a good idea to overwinter it in a cold greenhouse. Don't overwater it - just enough to prevent it drying out completely - the amount really depends on the weather - it will need less when its very cold. You can usually tell by the look of the plant if it is very short of water.If there's a likelihood that the soil in the greenhouse may freeze you should protect it as when soil freezes the plant can dry of dehydration.
