do they tolerate cold weather? what do you do with them when they are too big to bring indoors in winter?

On plant Coprosma repens



No, they don't like frosts one bit. I lost all my collection the winter before last, so I keep mine in pots and put them under glass, in a frost-free greenhouse. as even fleece didn't save them. I shall be in trouble if they do get too big to take in! I suppose that treble layers of fleece might be OK...I think that as they mature, they can withstand lower temperatures, too, or so I've been told.
