Now, they are taking up residence on the kitchen floor until I get around to cutting them back and removing the dead leaves. I also have to go into the back room and make room for them to sit in the south window. They need a good soaking and some fertilizer and then we'll call it a season.
They look marvelous. I deadheaded them about mid-September and they responded with a flourish of blooms. The pink one, at the back, is about 3 feet tall now. It's going to be tough to take about 6 inches off it, but I need to or it will bet quite leggy.
Here comes the "hard" part. I haven't been able to overwinter a red geranium. I bought one this year and it looks very happy in its pot. Can I keep it going all winter?
