Place your plant somewhere you can see the entire plant from all sides.Use a drop cloth or an area you can sweep up. If your plant has been outside all summer most likely it has grown a lot larger than the plants grown inside.
Start by cutting out some of the heavy growth around the inside of the plant.Always cut the plant at the Node. Which is where the leaf or new branch intersect.Cutting the plant in between the nodes can allow for insect or disease susceptibility.
On smaller plants cut the tops back so the under growth can get light through the winter. when there is less light.
Vineing plants you can cut way back so they can rejuvenate through winter. Shape the plants as you desire with the techniques described above.
Water plant conservatively through out the winter.Usually when the soil is dry to the touch.
