i like to know about bougenvillea, mandevilla and trumpet vines and how to take care of them in winter?
|All the vines you mention are tender and will need to go indoors during the winter months. They need a bright location in the winter and should be watered regularly. Start acclimating them to indoors this fall when nighttime temperatures drop to about 50F. Move them first to a shady spot for about a week (to prepare them for lower light levels indoors). Then take them indoors, prune them back if necessary to reduce their sizes, and set them in a brightly lit area away from drafts from open windows or doors, and away from heater vents. They will grow a bit while indoors but probably won't flower for you. In the spring, when nighttime temperatures are about 50F, take them back outside, first to a shady spot for a week or two, and then into full sunshine. They will begin to grow and flower for you in late spring or early summer. Enjoy!|
