Forkers football team-Jean may need a push

Yes they will providing they are kept dry and cool-not cold and damp-greenhouse may not be the best place- also try taking some cuttings now

Pelargoniums will.....and do...survive for me in an unheated greenhouse. Often they survive outdoors. But then i am in sw cornwall. The main thing is to keep them fairly dry in the winter only watering during warm spells when it is obvious they need it. Bud808 read up a little to see what buds and nodes really is not difficult. Pelargonium cuttings are best taken and left for day before potting. Cuttings do best on the edge of pot too.

They may survive for you-you are fortunate in your location-but as a general rule they will not-the damp or cold will see them off-for insurance they are best kept indoors on a sunny windowsill during the winter

We have inbuilt ward robes-how come as a chap I get less that an a third of space and have to share that with other items?-

my stuff is on hangers-am too common for tissue paper.

Why would someone trek across Antarctica in the dark and in minus70C-do they wear silk shorts?
