Last year, I grew several grape cuttings. They spent the summer happily in pots, then I brought them inside before the frost, when they prompted shed their leaves and died.

I've started anew this year and have several growing cuttings. I intend to keep them potted. I'd like to know what to do with them this fall. Do I leave them in pots outdoors? Stick them in the garage? I'm in zone 6b.

Thanks for helping out the newb.

In pots, i dont ever think you'll ever get a grape.
Are your winters to cold for them to survive outside, in ground ???
If there just for ortimantals, put them in garage for winter.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

I grew up and gardened in Connecticut and grew grapes. If you plant the grape plants in the ground they should survive the winter for you. Most vitis are hardy to you zone.

Thanks! I want to grow them potted (I already have a few established grapes). They are Concords, so pretty frost hardy, but I wasn't sure if a young cutting would survive the winter in a pot. I'll try the garage.
