You can grow them in containers outside in the summer, but they are only hardy to 20 degree F, so if it gets colder than that where you live, they will not survive year round.

Here's all the information you need to start off your allamanda plant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/golden-trumpet/allamanda-indoors.htm
I would recommend using any potting soil (not one with moisture-retentive additives) or african violet soil, with an equal quantity of perlite added. Regarding fertilizer, a balanced 6-6-6 or 10-10-10 would work well. Make sure to water enough that you get a good run off from the drainage holes every time, to make sure all roots are moistened, as well as to avoid buildup of unused fertilizer salts.

Allamanta should be pruned in early spring. You can cut back about 1/3 of the bush per year. This will encourage new growth and more flowering.

Yes, the longer you leave them, the better the chance that they have to be able to germinate. Take them right before they fall out if possible.
