Well, I transplanted 14 Geraniums from my big containers and hanging baskets into 6" pots and brought them all inside under fluorescent lights. I also started 24 cuttings which I have covered and under lights. I also did the same with 9 begonias which I also transplanted into 6" pots. We will see what happens. Stan

Stan, what type of begonias are you saving over? My seed grown Illumination Apricot tuberous begonias had froze the other night and are now in the house while I wait for the tops to fall off before storing them in the coldroom for winter.

I took cuttings from my geraniums and now have about 50 plugs growing in the sunroom. I don't have grow lights but I've found that the geraniums don't really need them. This is my first year trying to grow begonias and I was planning on bringing it in and keeping it in the cold room over winter. Terry, is it hard to start them from seed? Marg

RE: Overwintering Geraniums and Begonias

twrosz, they are just the non stop begonias. I don't really hava a cool place to keep them in my basement as I have renters there. I have a total of eight so would be nice to see them continue to grow and hopefully my geraniums will do well. Stan
