Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Mandevilla need sandy, well-draining soil with plenty of organic material mixed in. A good soil mix for mandevilla plants includes two parts peat moss or potting soil to one part builder’s sand. If planting outdoors in warmer climates, a light and well drained soil with plenty of organic material mixed in is preferred. Plant in a bright position with filtered sun light avoiding full mid-day sun. They need a minimum temperature of 15C during active growth and a minimum winter temperature of 7C.
