Geraniums delight our gardens, balconies and terraces throughout the summer. But these lovely subtropical plants cannot tolerate frost. So, either you let them freeze in the fall, even if it means buying new plants in the spring, or you bring them indoors for the winter.

Now, this is important… If you want to have the chance to see your geraniums bloom again the following spring, you need to provide them very special care.
