Q.

over wintering

I have a yellow Arbutilon plant in my conservatory. Does it drop its leaves in winter ? Should I cut it back later in the year as it is getting rather leggy ? Can I leave it in the conservatory over the winter ?

Now would be a good time to trim it very lightly, as it starts to go dormant. Leaf drop is common when humidity or temperature changes quickly. It would be well suited for indoors.
