Hi Ken,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

There are different variety of Mandevillas, some types will only form clumps and only send out few tendrils.  Try feed the plant every 6-8 weeks with  'Yates Thrive Natural Roses & Flowers Organic Based Pelletised Plant Food' as a complete, soil-conditioning fertiliser for more prolific blooming and healthy plant growth.
