I have been given a lot of plants in pots by a friend who is moving abroad; they are what I always think of as 'normal' geraniums - red or white heads in pom pom format rather than cranesbills; and of course I don't know if these are called pelargonia really.
Also several begonia - not the bedding sort, but the ones with really bright flowers that look almost artificial. If I move them into my sun room (so called, not exactly a hot house at this time of year) and/or greenhouse can I leave them in their pots as full plants, or should I cut them right back? Or is the reason that people take cuttings of them every year because they don't overwinter at all?
Fuchsia also - I have some hardy ones that live in the garden all the time, but I don't know what these potted ones are, and have no idea how to treat them as it gets colder.
