The Q&A Archives: Mandeville Vine

Question: Does a Mandeville Vine need shade or full sun? Does it need moist soil or dry?

Answer: Outdoors, grow mandevillas in partial shade (afternoon shade is best). They need rich, well-drained, sandy soil with humus added. They like moist but well draining soil. Provide a frame, trellis or stake for support and pinch young plants to induce bushiness.

Best wishes with your mandevilla.
