I know that my PNW friends Alison and Peter cleverly took their Brugs under glass before frost. Hopeful of a return from roots, mine remain in the ground.
January 26, 2013: Brug cuttings in GH.
By end of March, 2013 there was a bud on one cutting. I tend to forget some thrills until I look at old posts.
Meanwhile, looking at this year's dead plants from a different perspective:
Among evergreens, they have an almost sculptural quality. Later I'll cut them to ground to wait for new growth.
Maybe next fall I'll find room for a cutting or two in a gallon nursery pot again.
