    mine are tucked away under th lights down in the basement. They will be trimmed, and cuttings taken and handed out to poor unsuspecting family members.

    You can't really. It's best to start with fresh geraniums each year.

    I spray mine with a mild soapy water and wash the pots with soapy water, to get rid of bugs, webs, etc. Then bring them inside to either a sunny window or in the basement on tables under shop lights. They do wonderful and often bloom over winter. I have several that are several years old and get larger each year.

    Yes, you can save them, as I did. I had the same plant for 4 years. I simply cut old wood and trim it down for the winter, but still watered. They come back a little haggard for a while but go crazy after they adjust again. Also after cutting I rerooted in water and had some more!
