I have recently moved into a flat which the previous owners have left 3 concrete window boxes containing what I believe to be Geraniums. All three window boxes are south facing on a first floor and next to single glazed windows. 2 containers have stopped flowering but the remaining 1 is still flowering.
My question is 2 fold:
1) What type of Geraniums do I have
2) Should I bring these in for the winter, and if so i have no where to leave them potted, so I guess I would need to overwinter and store in a dry place?
Thanks in advance - any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

|These are actually Pelargoniums (Pelargonium) commonly called geraniums but they are two different type of plants.
It depends on how much frost you get there. Generally they can handle short spurts of frost, especially up against the house like yours but any extended frost usually does them in so they would be considered a tender perennial, grown as an annual.
