I have grown geraniums from plugs and recently planted them in large pots outside which I bring inside at night. The leaves are starting to fade in colour why is this?



Too cold for them, particularly at the moment, possibly. Leave them out for short periods during the warmest bit of the day, bring back inside. Extend gradually the length of time you leave them out for, till by mid May, they're out all night.

Hi Penner I suggest you look at my latest blog on perlargonium/geraniums overwintering of, in pots without a greenhouse. This May is so cold at night in London area that it is not safe yet to leave new plants unprotected. Plastic bag over, fleece, in garden shed, anything just to give that bit of protection
