Hello:
This past spring I spent over $800.00 for Landscape Geraniumsand most if not all of them did well with lots of blooms. I want to say the stronger plants and plant them next spring. I was told that I could dig the plants and dry them upside down for about four months in a dry, dark place.

Can you advise me how and what I should do to ensure success with this activity. Also any suggestions as to using rooting powder, etc.

Thank You for your assisstance!

the winter months, periodically take the plants down and soak the roots in water for 1 to 2 hours. Most of the leaves will fall off during the winter. However, the stems should remain firm or solid. Cut back the geraniums to 1/3 their original height and pot indoors in late winter or plant outdoors in May. This method of overwintering requires proper storage conditions.
