Okay since I take the plants down for the winter-how do I keep this till Spring?

Attach it to something else in your yard
- you'll want to keep the orientation the same, flat side down, so the tiny babies can drop out the bottom in the spring. I've tied these to branches with strips of old pantyhose in the past - something strong but with a bit of flexibility.

Or leave this plant up for the winter. That would be easiest!
