Frozen geraniums

I have/had about 30 beautiful Geraniums in my greenhouse that I brought in at the beginning of winter. I had a power outage for between 18-24 hrs during which time it dropped to 28 degrees. They look like they are dying now. Is it possible that they will survive. What should I do?

RE: Frozen geraniums

I assume these are Pelargoniums, rather than Geraniums which are hardy, in which case you can't do anything really. If they're frozen they're dead and nothing you do will revive them. I would just try to keep them above freezing until the spring and hope they show signs of life. It depends on whether there is some of the plant left which did not get frozen.
