The Mandevilla ‘Alice du Pont’ is a tender plant. It will be happy in a conservatory, or a well-lit window or porch. In milder parts it will also be happy to spend the summer on a patio or balcony – but they are not hardy.

Make sure your plant gets plenty of light, by putting it near a window. However, try to avoid strong direct sunlight if possible and place it a little way back from the window glass to avoid scorching.

Whilst the plants are in small pots you will need to water regularly especially if in a warm spot. However, don’t worry if you let it dry out between watering – the compost does not need to be wet, just slightly damp. Every few watering’s put a drop of liquid feed in the water just to help it grow.

Cut off dead flowers to encourage more buds and train the plant upwards – it is a climber by nature. As the plant puts on more growth, it can be re-potted into a larger pot with rich potting compost.

Brown edges or tips to the leaves is a sure sign of scorching, try moving back from any window glass to a slightly less sunny spot.
