When growing Hibiscus standards in patio containers, use soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Repot the Hibiscus plant at its original soil level and firm well into the new container. Water well and position in full sun. Alternatively, plant directly into sheltered, sunny borders in moist, free draining, neutral to alkaline soil.
Feed and water regularly. As plants increase in size they will require repotting into increasingly larger pots. Prune Hibiscus in late spring, removing any damaged stems and shaping the head of the standard to a spherical shape. Hibiscus are often one of the last shrubs in the garden to break bud, so be patient with plants that appear to have died over winter - they may just be dormant still!

    Very disappointing. I ordered these through a Groupon offer. I followed the instructions exactly and After around 4 weeks I've still got 2 dead Hibiscus.

  2. 2 dead tricolour hibiscus

    Bought two through Groupon. Followed the instructions exactly and after 4 weeks the plants are as dead as when they arrived. Very disappointed.
