overwinter without digging up? No basement, either!
I lucked into a bunch of hardy/ivy geraniums last night at LoweÂs Â a bakerÂs rack of about 23 for 20Âin plastic pots in bushel baskets.
I have read online about overwintering them by digging up or putting in a basement. My house is too small to bring them inÂno space to spare. I have crawl space but it doesnÂt get light.
I found the following onlineÂ.IÂm not sure I can come up with 20 boxes! Would leaves and a clear plastic sheet do it? Is there another, better way?
>>DEEP MULCHING OUTDOORS Cut the plant back to eight inches tall. Cover a plant or a small group of plants with an inverted, shallow cardboard box. Cover the box with at least ten inches of dry leaves. Cover the leaves with a sheet of clear plastic. The leaves and plastic will trap and hold the earth's heat. In average winters, the plants will spring to life when uncovered in late March.
