Gardening Know How Questions & Answers -


My first hibiscus plant – I loved it outside and I want to save it. How do I winterize and debug it? Do I clean the soil? If so, with what? And the leaves, do I wash the leaves with something or do I spray them? Please help me. Thank you.

If you are bringing in a potted tropical hibiscus, you can hose it down well with water and cut it back by up to 1/3 before bringing it indoors. Neem oil is a good treatment for any pest issues that you may have. If your plant is a hardy variety, it will not require any special care over winter and should not be cut back until spring.
