Can I transplant a Hibiscus in the spring before it comes up?
Hibiscus Plants – Well Established Ones
Just before dormancy breaks is a good time for transplants if the soil isn't too wet. Try to avoid compacting the soil by using a section of plywood to distribute your weight. Give the plant a few weeks to recover from the shock before you fertilize. A 2 inch layer of compost can be applied under the drip line for a nice, slow fertilizer.
