    Not sure where you are based, but generally, Santolinas don't require winter protection. They are however, very sensitive to excessive wet. The soil needs to be free draining due to the rainy and damp winters in the UK. As for cuttings, I don't recommend it for this time of year. They're best taken in late summer.
