My mandevillas are growing like weeds but they have stop producing flowers. What should I do? They are very green and I cut them back since they are taller than my garage. How can I get them to flower again?

Mandevillas normally bloom throughout the growing season on older wood. Perhaps the vine has been too vigorous and decided to put too much energy into growth rather than blooms. Back off on fertilizing it, if you have been fertilizing. Keep watering to just what is needed. You can cut it back since it sounds like it is larger than you want it to be and it will regrow. In time it should settle down and start flowering again.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
