Answer: Hi Kath.

Thanks for your enquiry.

Firstly, apologies for the delay in responding. We have been overwhelmed with a huge number of queries over recent weeks and we’re trying to answer everyone as soon as we can. We appreciate your patience.

Autumn is a great time to move plants, as the air temperatures are milder but the soil is still warm enough to encourage root growth and therefore allow the plant to start to establish before winter. So, now is the time to move your mandevilla. I recommend watering it really well the day beforehand, cutting it back by 20-30%, spraying with an anti-transpirant like Yates DroughtShield.

Hope the moving goes well!

Kind regards,
