I over winter cuttings from the Geraniums (Pelargoniums to give them their proper name), as they are frost-tender and can't survive below 1C, a temperature sadly often reached in the Scottish Borders. This is one of my favourites which I have made sure gets through the winter months in a frost-free greenhouse for several years now.

Overwhelmed and totally delighted with the response to my previous posting. I've personally thanked all 6 of those who so generously gave me their UAs. That will take some beating!! Big Thank You to all who took time to look in, vote/comment likewise. Your encouragement certainly makes all the difference.

That is such a beautiful color. I too overwinter my favorites on my unheated porch. They tolerate it very well.
The bloom truly looks like velvet, I've never seen one this shade. lovely!
