Q.Hibiscus buds fall off before blooming

Zone 9 | triciamilton added on August 4, 2012 | Answered

I have sprayed them with bug killer and it helped for a while but now it’s happening again. We live in FL and it’s very warm and rains almost every day for a short time. I noticed the ends of all the leaves are turning yellow too. What can I do to help my hibiscus plants?
