Need Help With Tibouchina Urvilleana!!!!
I just got a great buy on a 5" tibouchina urvilleana. I already had 2 - 18" plants and just love them. The problem is that this one is so big that it will have to stay outside this winter. I'm planning to buy a gigantic container, fill the bottom with mulch, then the plant in it's planter, then more mulch on the sides and some on top. I have a place where it should be somewhat protected from the weather, while still getting sun. Think this will work???? (Keep your fingers crossed!!!LOL) Anyway, when do I start cutting this plant back and how far? How do I take cuttings and when should I do this? And lastly, is there a webpage that has all the details in the growing and propagation (preferably in simple English for newbies...) for plants? Thank you for any and all help!
