The Q&A Archives: Prunning Hibiscus

Question: I have two very large hibiscus plants (still blooming) that need to be brought inside the house before the first frost. Should I prune now, or wait until the next Spring?

Answer: You can prune your hibiscus as soon as you take them indoors. Pruning encourages new growth so expect the plants to fill out while they're inside. If lighting and temperatures are suitable, your hibiscus may even bloom while indoors. Enjoy!
