Derbyshire, United Kingdom
my geraniums and begonias are still flowering lovely. I'm not sure what to do with them i want to keep the begonia corms over winter and dig the geraniums up and over winter them in a garage. I know how to do this as i have read some suggestions on here. I'm just not sure if i should wait until they stop flowering. I have 1 week left until i go away on holiday and when i come back it will be the end of october. For my area the first frost are usually about the middle of october. If they catch a frost while i'm away if i dig them up will the corms and the plants still be ok. They are fairly sheltered in tubs and under trees and near the house. i have also just recieved my primrose plug plants and i need to get them in where the geraniums are now but i'm worried about digging up them while they are flowering.
