Can I bring in the beautiful coleus and keep it thriving inside? If so, how do I proceed? Also, the same question regarding my geraniums.

You can take both coleus and geraniums indoors. As long as you provide bright light they should continue to grow nicely for you. Or, you can take tip cuttings from both plants and start brand new plants for growing indoors. Smaller plants are usually easier to overwinter so you might try both - take the existing plants indoors and then take tip cuttings to root in water or in moistened potting soil. This way you'll be assured of having healthy plants to take back outdoors in the springtime. Enjoy!
