I live in south Louisiana and it's been a year or so experimenting and learning as I go! Keeping beautiful things alive! Making my own compost!

#mandevilla new trellis...took the laddus work down and spray painted metal stand black so the white flowers will pop up against it...still don't know if this is final or will do something else...but will work for now @carolgs @lesliecole49 @ripjuju

Blooms will come soon. But I feel that Mandevilla needs much bigger height trellis as it can climb up fast. Lots of Ferns nearby

I figured that...that's why sure it's not final...still have my thinking cap on...might just break down and saw the laddus or might just eventually break down and buy one but always trying to #recycle stuff!!! @gauravsh6

#mandevilla ...So I need honest opinions here....trying to figure out where to place this beauty where it can vine...this is pretty much my only option...had a bakers rack first but that won't do....is the laddus tacky? Not sure if I'm liking this but don't know what to do. ANY ADVICE?

I think if the trellis is cut 2 or 3 holes narrower and perhaps painted a darker colour it would be perfect. @drea0508

@drea0508 Paint it green half the size o f the lattice and post the progress. I have one I need to trellace also. Put a steak in the center and angle the lattice like a tee pee braced at the top.
