trim hibiscus

Anonymous added on October 28, 2014 | Answered

I have a hibiscus in a pot that I bring inside in the winter. It has grown and needs to be trimmed but I am not sure how much cutting I should do. Can I over trim? It is 2 years old and I put it on the porch in the summer and bring it in in the fall.

It is ok to trim your hibiscus plant if you are overwintering it indoors. In fact, this can lessen the stress it will likely experience while acclimating to its new indoor environment. You can trim whenever you deem necessary, but for hard pruning I would wait until spring when you set it back out.
