     My potted Geraniums are going over.  Is it possible to keep them over the winter to grow again next year or should they be dumped?

    They do tolerate a degree or so below freezing. I have overwintered some in a frost free greenhouse. They survived but lost their lustre the next year. I now normally compost mine and restock the following year.

    I am trying again this year to salvage both ivy-leaf pelargoniums & fuschias and see if they will revive next year. I keep mine in a conservatory, which isn't really heated, but I think maybe warmer than a greenhouse. I have one pelargonium that I've kept for about 5 years and seems to be fine but maybe it depends on the variety. Worth a try, I would say.

    I agree Minnie77uk Ivy leaf geraniums do overwinter better.
