I'm just in the process of taking apart my hanging baskets. I think I can salvage the trailing ivy, but what about the geraniums? Is it worh potting them up and keeping them over the winter? Will they bloom again next year?

Where to keep, inside or an unheated greenhouse?

Thanks in advance, Tina

    Yes they will providing they are kept dry and cool-not cold and damp-greenhouse may not be the best place- also try taking some cuttings now

    Why not pot them up and keep them indoors on sunny windowsills - they'll continue to flower through the winter if you use reasonable compost and give them an occasional feed with Baby Bio or similar.  Then you can plant them out again in the spring.  And as Geoff says, take some cuttings now too image

    I've kept several hanging baskets with  Fushias and Pelegoniums for several years in my greenhouse over winter. This year the the flowers produced was the best ever. The Pelegoniums continue to flower all winter but with smaller flower heads. My favorite basket is now over 5 years old and still going strong.
