about two years ago I had geraniums that survived winter. I was really shocked about that as winters here are harsh and cold AND it was in a hanging basket at that. Then we moved so I have no idea what happened to it when the new people moved in. Can only assume they tore it up with the rest of the garden.

I had a geranium in a hanging pot so I brought it in for the last three winters I finally threw it out this winter due to renos and it was a big mess but it was big and beautiful come time to put it out each year. :)

Hmm, does that mean I could bring a pot of snaps into the house and overwinter it like geraniums???? :?
