Over wintering a new hydrangea & geranium in pots

How often do you water and feed these pots which are in a cold greenhouse?

    I can only speak about the geraniums (mine are really pelargoniums).  I have left them as long as 4 or 5 weeks.  I am not an expert but I think it is the cold rather than the moistness of the growing medium that gets them.  And if I am right I think that is because they effectively become dormant as the temperature goes down and hence do not require as much nutrition.  I used to keep mine in the spare room but with the warmer winter temperatures the cold greenhouse works well and I can have many more in there.   Good luck.
