Q.Over Wintered Hibiscus

Anonymous added on June 20, 2011 | Answered

I over-wintered a hibiscus and it did well throughout the winter and has grown and produced lots of leaves since I put it back outside about a month ago. However, it has only produced two flowers this year, and it doesn’t look like it intends to produce any more. I did feed it with a Miracle Gro product about 10 days ago, but no sign of buds as yet. Should I just be patient?

It may need some phosphorus. It cannot bloom without this. Give it either a "bloom booster" fertilizer or bone meal.
