Geraniums (keeping through winter)

Asked October 27, 2016, 7:40 PM EDT

What is the proper way to keep geraniums through the winter if I choose to dig up those grown outside and keep them inside for replanting next spring? Thank you. Hazel D.

Thank you for your question. Geraniums are great as housplants over the winter or can be overwintered as somewhat dormant plants.

Here are two Extension publications about growing geraniums indoors (and outdoors) and how to overwinter geraniums:
