    Most carnations are hardy over winter, but a small handful are frost tender, and will need to go into a greenhouse or a warm wall with fleece or straw over the top if going into minus temperatures.

    There is no need to cut them down. They are usually short-lived, so might be a good idea to divide them up ready for next year or make some cuttings now. Put them into pots ready for next year.
