Care For Your Hibiscus
This is the heart and soul of this grow manual. In this section we take a closer look at the different aspects of growing hibiscus that you will meet, from that hard but fun decision of which cultivars to choose, the daily and seasonal care, to the less amusing aspects of pests and diseases. In depth discussions of fertilizer components, soil mix ingredients, pesticides and more will give you all the knowledge you need to make sound gardening decisions. The clear simple language will make it easy to absorb the information whether you are a complete beginner with little or no gardening experience or have grown hibiscus for years. After reading through this section you will have a solid foundation in how to grow the best hibiscus plants you have ever imagined!
Cultivars In The Hotseat
We just talked about choosing what hybrid to grow. But how can you know which one will suit your conditions and experience? That is why this section came into being. It has an in depth portrait of each of the chosen cultivars (named hybrids) and we are not just talking beautiful photos here although there are plenty of those going around too! We have grown hundreds, in many cases tens of thousands of plants of these varieties and all that knowledge is now at your fingertips to refer to at any time. Some are easy to grow and others have to be constantly pruned to look even decent. Some are finicky while others are as sturdy as a plow horse. Here you will learn the REAL facts and not be swayed by mere pretty pictures!
At a Glance Cultivar Chart
Ever wondered if a certain variety will do well in your location? Will the cute plant you just bought stay low and compact or will it try to poke a hole through your ceiling? How about the sun requirements and what about heat tolerance? To help you out this chart will at a glance give you such information as light, ideal temperature, height and width of the mature plant and suitable uses.
101 Hibiscus Questions
Did we leave anything out? Yes, the special question and answer section! These are REAL questions from REAL people asking for help and information about growing their plants. It's laid out in sections such as "Roots, Pots & Soil", "Blooms & Leaves" and "Pruning, Watering, Wintering".
