Answer: I've heard this method is used, but I've never tried it, so can't vouch for its effectiveness. Dig the geraniums from the ground and carefully remove dirt from the roots. Leave flowers and leaves attached. Hang the entire plant upside down from a clothesline (or similar) in the basement. Depending on the size of the plant, you can drape it over the line or use strips of fabric or pantyhose to tie smaller ones. Leave for the winter. In spring, remove any remaining leaves or flowers, plant the geranium, and water well. You must have a cool damp basement (or garage) that maintains temps. in the 40-50 degree range all winter. If your basement is heated, it probably won't work. I hope this info helps!
