Looking very good, despite fading a bit. I’m sure it will come back red when you can give it more light as it warms up. I’ve always struggled to keep my pelargoniums indoors over winter as they always die, so I keep them in the polytunnel outside to fend for themselves! They hate it but they seem to pull through… just!

2w
comment
hkyfvr

Thanks so much. One of mine did not make it but the other 3 are looking good. Glad the polytunnel is working. With our snow and cold temps it will be a couple of months to wait for any warmth. Love seeing everyone’s plants popping up on gtags. Can’t wait for all my new bulbs to poke through the soil. 👍😍 @richard.spicer.7906

Here is the photo Katy @gjones. After I saw yours I checked on mine and realized I had overwatered one of them. Had to repot it this morning. Hope it will survive. I have to get used to the fact that they need less water in the cold months. First time overwintering geraniums.
