If you don’t have a greenhouse then you might be better to keep them in a heated conservatory or on a bright windowsill indoors. Perhaps you have a kind gardening friend or neighbour who could spare some heated greenhouse space? Little plastic greenhouses are generally very difficult to keep frost free given the small volume of air within them. It would be a constant battle to keep the temperature up and would not be very economical. Reduce watering over winter so that the cuttings are kept moist but never wet or waterlogged. Keeping them on the drier side will also help to protect their delicate roots from the cold. Of course, if they are in a heated greenhouse then they will dry out much quicker than they would on a cool, bright windowsill!
