Bands and the greenhouse

My unheated greenhouse is fill with little more than bands in 1g pots and cuttings in cups right now. For the 10-day forecast the weather is high 30's to low 40's.

BUT I need to move the greenhouse later this week. It is a pvc homemade beast so with a dozen cuts I plan on taking the top off and moving it in two sections.

Would the cold damage the cuttings? Guessing I will only have help moving the greenhouse late on Thursday, so it will be Friday before I know I can have it either back together or redesigned in to two green houses (something I am thinking of doing) I can probably slip the trays with roses under the top, but they will be on the ground.

Any thoughts?

Kippy, are these already-rooted? Or do you mean New cuttings?


RE: Bands and the greenhouse

Jeri, they are new burrito cuttings that have been in pots for anything from 1 week to a month and my bands.

I am thinking it will be colder in the top half of the green house with it sitting on the ground that they are in the green house right now as it is.

If you have a really warm spot against the house, maybe a south facing wall, you could put them there temporarily.

RE: Bands and the greenhouse

Kippy -- In TX, we saw the "greenhouses" in which ARE overwinters their new cuttings. They weren't more than 4-ft. tall. Hoop houses. LOW! And believe me, it gets a lot colder there than it does in S.B.

In the temps we're expecting, I don't expect a problem for you. Our incredible cold would be laughed-at by most of the country.

Take a hint from the local farmers, and make sure everything is well-hydrated, and you should probably be fine.
