how do I cut back a mandevilla on a trellis

Zone 9b | mavis thornton added on February 20, 2014 | Answered

My mandevilla is planted in the ground and on a trellis. It made it through the winter. It's still green on the top, but not so much on bottom. How do I cut it back? Do I cut the vines off the trellis or cut from the bottom? I am not real familiar with vines.

I would wait until you see growth and then cut away anything that is brown and brittle. In your area, it likely will not need much cutting back.
