Droopy pellies

I've kept my pelargoniums in an unheated conservatory, watering them very little, and they have been fine for months, standing tall and healthy. All of a sudden they started to droop! What should I do?

    Plunge each pot in a bucket of water till no air bubbles appear and then leave to drain completely.  If they perk up, cut back most of the top growth and use to make cuttings.  If they don't discard most of the top growth and see if they shoot again.  They should.
