Burying green growth is more likely to make it rot. Wait until frost,
which will knock off the leaves and kill back anything that hasn't
hardened, THEN bury the dormant shoots. Leaves are good if you have
enough, though in some you might get mice or voles which would chew
the wood and eat buds. Soil reduces that likelyhood.

Its good to hear that Glenora is worth retaining.
As far as getting its this-year's green wood through the winter, my
specific question is my best best burying this year's wood in soil, or
covering this year's wood with leaves?
Which is most likely to make this year's wood permanent so green growth
can come from it every year?
