    You're in the same zone I am. I haven't tried saving Geraniums, but it would save buying new ones every year!

    I cover them at night - when it gets into the 30's. I don't wait until it freezes. They seem to overwinter OK.

    I guess it depends on how cold your area gets and the placement of them. Where I live, in Sussex County NJ, it gets in the teens and sometimes very close to zero. I tried once and it did not work for me so I just changed out the soil (don't want any hidden critters in the house) and kept them in a spare room by the window and they were fine. I did cut them back, also. You can try putting them on a porch in a corner with some breathable landscape fabric over them. Sometimes it's just easier to buy new every spring.

    no, you will need to bring them indoors if you plan to reuse them next year

    I've heard you can pull the out by the roots and put them in your covered window wells with some leaves; in spring replant and they should bloom . However I prefer to bring inside and put as is with pot in basement, and try to remember to water very lightly a few times over winter. Have had great luck that way.
