overwintering So close to growing season, how can I save this overwintered plant?

The plant has a whitefly infestation, everyday I vacuum and squish all that I can. I'm thinking I should have trimmed it back more. Should I trim more now? Lots of new leaves/suckers are continuing to grow, by then quickly turn brown and die. Any help is appreciated!

I had a small whitefly infestation on one plant - sprinkled the soil with turmeric and then made an infusion with turmeric and warm water, about 2 teaspoons to 1 cup of warm water and sprayed the plant, especially underneath the leaves, 2 days later no whitefly :D
