One way to winter over geraniums is at the end of the season when they appear to have quit growing, pull them out with the roots intact. Shake the soil off of the roots, tie them together with a string and hang them upside down in your basement with little light. Over the winter they will look very dead. Come spring they will start to show green and even produce small blooms. After all danger of frost has passed, plant and water them, bringing outside. It takes a bit, but all of a sudden they will look just as wonderful as the previous season.

I have kept them for years this way.
