No, I never left them in the ground!
They were wrapped in a box in the shed but it had been a very hard winter and the shed had developed a hole in the rear side and floor.
I lost Geraniums the same year and really cba with that sort of thing anymore. The over-wintering became too much hassle, the shed needed all sorts of repairs (or replacing) and we got so fed up with the greenhouse being damaged in storms so we eventually got rid of it a couple of years ago.
We're gradually remodelling the garden to make things lower maintenance since we're getting too old and lame for high maintenance stuff.
I'm just a little old lady, remember. A tiny old lady fed up with injuring herself in the garden.
