Being new to propagation, I have recently bought a little mini greenhouse, and my problem is, when my little cuttings have rooted, when should I move them out of there after I have potted them. Should they be put into shade in a sheltered spot, or should some of the more tender ones, like osteospermum be kept in the greenhouse over winter. Thanks for any advice.

Marion I would definitely keep the osteo. under cover for its first winter , any other cuttings in your mini g/house introduce them outside slowly don't put them in full sun right away I would also put them back inside for their first winter they will not be robust enough to stand the elements in their first year.

Thanks Eric for your message which I have just read. It has been very helpful, as I just did not know when to take out the rooted cuttings.
