How to Store My Bougaivillea During the Winter – When Do I Cut It Back

thequeenbeverly added on June 3, 2017 | Answered

I have been putting my plant in the garage during the winter, live in Vancouver, Washington, and that has worked very well, I give it about a cup of water once a month as I was told but this year it isn\'t doing as well. Should I cut it back before I store it for the winter or wait till spring when it starts to get new growth? Thanks Bev

Can you bring it in the house? If not, cut it back to around 6 inches in the fall and add 2 inches of mulch to protect the roots. Mine was fine and grew like crazy the following year. It sounds like it got too cold in the garage and it is a tropical plant.
