How to winterize ground planted Hibiscus?

How do you revive a dying hibiscus plant?

  • Fertilize the plant. Adding a time-released fertilizer such as Osmocote to the plant before bringing it indoors can be helpful, because hibiscuses that are fertilized regularly will return more quickly in the spring. Prune the hibiscus plant to make it more manageable.

How do you fertilize Hibiscus in the fall?

  • Feed the hibiscus plant with a potassium fertilizer in October or November to encourage profuse blooming the following year. Do not give it a nitrogen at this time - nitrogen will encourage new leafy growth that will only be damaged by cold weather or lost during the winter. Care for the hibiscus plant throughout the fall months.

How do you take care of a hibiscus plant in a garage?

  • Make sure it gets sunlight and LIGHT watering periodically. While you keep the hibiscus indoors, make sure it gets sunlight and light watering occasionally. I don’t have windows inside my garage unfortunately, so every week or so (if weather permits), I bring my pots outside. I do a light watering while it is outside in the sunshine.
