For my six this Saturday, I decided to focus on hibiscus growing in containers. For some reason, they thrive in our humid climate and reward us with beautiful flowers throughout the year. I do prune hard to contain growth and feed regularly which probably helps. Very occasionally (if the plant is distressed) I water with a weak solution of hydrogen peroxide (3%) to oxygenate the soil and kill off bugs and diseases.
Hibiscus is also very easy to propagate and I have developed a proven method which keeps my friends supplied with healthy plants.
I now have ten hibiscus growing in containers and this is my latest addition. It has the same flower as the yellow hibiscus with red centre but this one is pale lemon.
Who else grows hibiscus in containers?
