It is october 21 and my hibiscus is still full of buds. Should I trim the plant back and take it in the house now or wait till the frost kills the buds?

A tropical hibiscus needs to go indoors before the first frost. For the moment, I'd take it indoors overnight and back outdoors when the weather is warm. This will coax it along and with any luck all those flower buds will open for you!
