Your colored bottles should be fine outside during the winter. Since the necks of the bottles are facing down they will not get water in them which would make them freeze and break.

Our Red and Brandywine bottles are not true colored glass, they are coated. These colored bottles will fade over time with exposure to the sun. All of our other colored bottles are true colored glass.
Are your bottle trees sturdy?
YES!! We use heavy steel rods and your tree will stick in the ground 18", so there is no danger of it blowing over. We've made our living building equipment and machinery and we have always prided ourselves in overbuilding things. You won't find a bottle tree built better than ours!

We build our bottle trees using smooth round rods called hot rolled steel. We do not use concrete rebar because it is very brittle and can break easily when you bend it.

We do not paint our trees because most people like the rusted look the trees get over time. You can paint your own tree in a few easy steps. 1. Clean the steel using mineral spirits and a rag. You can use steel wool to remove heavy rust. Be sure to wipe off any excess mineral spirits. 2. Using a can of spray primer, apply two coats according to the directions on the can.
