Start fertilizing?

I have overwintered a tropical hibiscus. When do I start fertilizing it? I am in zone 4.

Thank you for your help

Hi Annie..Have your overwintered your hibiscus near a window?
Did you know Hibiscus is one plant that doesn't go dormant in winter? I feed mine throughout the yr, w/a special hib food, which begets them to bloom 4 seasons long.
I first read this in James Crockett from Victory Garden's houseplant book..since reading, I've continued feeding my hibs on a regular basis. I keep my hib in south and east windows in winter and outdoors in summer. Toni
