Scented geranium has little frost tolerance, so it will need to be brought indoors to survive the winter. You can transplant it into a pot to keep as a houseplant, or, less reliably, the plant can be dug up and kept in a dark, cool, dry place in a semi-dormant state. You can also take cuttings and keep them growing during the winter.
