How do I get to the next stage from cuttings to fully grown plant

Posted: 29/09/2014 at 12:32

I'd put all of those cuttings outside in a sheltered spot.  Possibly rig up some sort of cold frame (some bricks or blocks with an old window on top - lots of ventilation) to keep the worst of the rain and snow off over the winter. 

They won't be happy indoors.

Do you have a varietal name other than Vitis vinifera?  Some types are suitable for growing outside in the right situation - others are for greenhouse culture.

Also, whereabouts are you?

It looks like lemon balm to me - check the stem - lemon balm has a square stem which is typical of members of the lamium family.
