    Tip of the Week

    Tip No. 1

    Pruning Hibiscus

    End of June is a good time to prune your sweet hibiscus. Cut back lanky branches and give it a good shape. Light to medium pruning can be done at this time. Remember when cutting the stems that hibiscus carries one flower at the end of each stem/ branch. Pruning will encourage more branching and therefore more flowering.

    Tip No. 2

    Neem and Giloy Pesticide

    This pesticide is very useful against pests that attack plants.

    To make this pesticide,  place neem leaves and giloy stems  (cut into small pieces) in a bucket. Fill with water and cover with a cloth. Allow to soak for 20 days, making sure to stir thoroughly with a wooden stick every day.

    After 20 days, strain and spray infected plants.
