first year ,my first hibiscus,when and how often do you feed them?
Not too much feed I,think. Just a scattering of fish blood n bone in early spring.
They grow v quickly with relatively brittle branches so I prune annually to keep compact.
Pruning after flowering should suffice with an established plant. A general feed in Spring should keep it happy They don't seem to be particularly heavy feeders if in the correct situation ( and they will seed readily too ).
Although they like well-drained soil they're quite thirsty, especially at flowering time, so don't forget to water in the summer
thanks guys ,should of asked before.I AM GUILTY of over feeding with rose +shrub .Can tell by the flower ,is there anything I CAN DO to rescue what left alone,thought about digging and replacing the soil?
