Shrub Problems

container shrub dropping leaves

Zone Manitoba Canada | loki added on October 4, 2015 | Answered

My container shrub (brought inside for winter) that smells like a eucalyptus, but is not, small leaf, is dropping all its leaves. Should I cut it back? It is in a sunny window. I sprayed it for bugs, and don't overwater. Should I move it to the basement?

Winter care depends greatly on the type of plant. Some shrubs or plants go dormant for winter and need a dark location, others do not.

Without know for sure the plant species you have I would say that if the leaves have dropped, cut back on watering and leave the plant in a sunny location.
