Winter Care Of Mandevilla Vine?

Answer

The best option for winter care of a Mandevilla vine is to bring the vine indoors. If possible, plant the vine in a movable pot and as the frost comes near, bring the plant inside. Ideally if the plant can be planted inside of a greenhouse or other weather resistant area then the plant could stay in one place all year, so this is an option as well. Finally, if the plant must stay outside then proper care is essential. The Mandevilla vine should be protected from insect damage prior to the winter, should be well fed and water prior to the winter, and should be trimmed prior to the winter. These steps prepare the plant to resist the winter elements. After this point, it becomes a wait and see approach.
