HI CORFIOT
I AM NOT FAMILIAR WITH A YELLOW GERANIUM VERY INTERESTING. IS IT THE HERBACEOUS TYPE OR THE PELARGONIUM TYPE?

Looks like the perlagonium type from that link, and it also says it is half hardy. This means the plant is able to cope with temperatures down to 0°C (32°F) but not hard frost. So if planted out you may be advised to lift it before frosts come or else grow it in a container outdoors, moving it in when when frosts are near.
Of course you could grow it indoors all the time or else grow it outdoors but take a load of cuttings growing them indoors to make up for winter kills.
