Geraniums can be lifted in October and potted up or placed in trays in groups with compost to cover the roots. They can be kept in a greenhouse or shed with some light.

It is not always very successful as the lifted plants often suffer damage by grey mould fungus.

It is much more reliable to take cuttings of geraniums in early August and have small neat healthy plants to overwinter.

Lifting plants is far more effort, and not as reliable, but can succeed.
