What plants can I keep in a basement or cellar during the winter?

Over-Wintering Plants

During "Indian Summer" weather, think ahead to over-wintering some plants and saving seed from others for next year's garden. Geranium and begonia will over-winter in a cellar or basement just fine in their own pots. Save the seed only from marigold, cockscomb and similar plants. And don't forget you can keep Wandering Jew and coleus in a sunny window to enjoy all winter long!
