    My standard Hibiscus overwintered really well - but this year looks very woody not a lot of flowers and very few leaves any tips - I have fed it with Tomato food once a week!

    It is in apot because I bring it indoors before the first frosts and the leaves are green when they are in leaf.

    my Hibiscus is left in the ground, don't know how old it is as it came with the house. It looses it leaves in winter, but it's in full bloom now, will take a picture and post tomorrow. Why not plant it out? they do well in full sun.
