Pembrokeshire, United Kingdom
My this year's hydrangea cutting is now a foot high and still growing very strongly, so I'm afraid the wood will not have time to ripen before the frosts. Can it be kept growing in a conservatory over the winter or can it be kept in a dark place like a garage once it has lost its leaves? I also have a small plastic wall house but that wouldn't keep much frost off in a hard winter.It is still in a pot. The other alternative is to put its pot inside a bigger one and fill the gap with bubble wrap, which would protect the roots but not the unripened wood. Any suggestions please?
(Funny season - I saw an elderberry in full flower this morning!!)
