It's time to bring my Hibiscus in for the winter. I removed it from it's pot and planted it earlier this year. It's done well and I'm hoping to enjoy it's bright orange blooms for years.

How far from the shrub to I need to start the edge of the dig so I make sure I don't nick important roots? How deep do I dig? Thanks for your help. My 4 yr old grandson and I planted this one together so it's got some sentimental value.

I pull my cajun Hibiscus out of their pots and trim the roots. Slide them back in with a little fresh soil. You need to dig 12 inches from base all around to start. Then you can wash and trim roots to fit pots.
