  2. Containers must be brought indoors in winter.
  3. Large containers may be overwintered in greenhouses, garages or basements.
  4. Wear elbow-length gloves that are thick enough to protect your hands from thorns or a clumsy slip, but flexible enough to allow you to hold your tools.
  5. Always wear safety goggles; branches can whip back when released.Start with pruning shears for smaller growth.
