I bought a coprosma repens pacific night for the garden but having looked it up it seems it is borderline hardy. Has anyone managed to get it through a winter outside? Is it easy (and how) to take cuttings from? Thanks for your (anticipated) help



I have seen it survive outside, but in a very sheltered spot, and I'd be surprised if the one I saw made it through last winter, frankly. Its frost tender, so move indoors or greenhouse as it gets cold. Cuttings are semi ripe early summer, so a bit late for this year. If you get any flowers, collect the seed,you can grow from those as well apparently.
