Get geraniums through winter

I HAVE had enquiries about geraniums and how best to keep them during the winter months.

Plants usually tell you when they are suffering. For instance the yellowing of the leaves are a sign of distress, this means the plant is not getting the right conditions it needs to grow and thrive.

One cause is insufficient light. Perhaps the plants are grouped together or too far from a light source.

Another cause is lack of water at the roots. Although geraniums do not like to grow in a humid atmosphere, they do need moisture at their roots but avoid water logging, they don’t like sitting in puddles of water.
