Should Dormant Geraniums Have Flowers Removed To Start?

We plan to make geraniums dormant. Should we cut off the flowers to start? We know the leaves will fall off.

I would remove the flowers. Once the plant is dormant, they won't look good and you'll end up removing them once winter is over if they haven't fallen. It's better that the plant not put energy into making seed while entering dormancy. You want the roots to be as loaded with nutrients as possible.
