i have a few geraniums i wish to overwinter after removing from the garden.
i fancy potting up and keeping indoors.
what would be the best compost and i have a cold greenhouse and garage so what would be the best place/site in the house.
thank you for any advice.

Plant Advice
by: Anlex Garden

Before you bring the plants into the house they should be examined to check for any deadleaves or flowers and check for pelargonuim rust.

Make sure the plants get plenty of light so they must be on the window sill. During the winter these plants will continue with their growth so the atmosphere must be dry but the roots need to be moist. Frost will kill the plant if the stems get caught. Over winter keep in a porch or conservatory or on a sunny windowsill. Any multipurpose compost is suitable.
