Your Mand. vines are stunning! Whatever you are doing, I wouldn't change a thing.

It does get below freezing some nights here, sometimes WAY below, and occasionally a rare snow. I do use mulch and leaf cover for outside gardens, up to a couple feet high during the cold months, but even that will only do so much, maybe help you cheat 1/2 to one whole zone. Sadly, not enough to save Coleus out there.

But I'm confident I gathered enough cuts to do this all over again in the spring.
