How to grow allamanda in a garden

  1. Choose a well drained spot in the garden that attracts full sun.
  2. Enrich the soil in the plating bed with some compost and Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser before planting.
  3. Dig the planting hole twice as wide and to the same depth as the root-ball. Remove the plant from the container, gently tease the roots.
  4. Position in hole and backfill, gently firming down. Form a raised ring around the plant, creating a well so that water will go where it’s needed most. Water in well. 
  5. Mulch around the base with organic mulch like bark chips, sugarcane or pea straw, keeping it away from the base of the plant.
  6. Feed every 1 to 2 weeks with Yates Thrive Roses & Flowers Liquid Plant Food.

Growing tips

  • If growing in cooler climates, they will require plenty of protection from frosts. Best performance is seen in the warmer more tropical climates.
  • Allamandas are sprawling climbers and if growing on a trellis or wall will require plenty of support to grow.
  • They can be grown as a low hedge like plant or ground cover. Regular pruning and maintenance is required to maintain shape and form.
  • Wear gloves when pruning to protect your skin from the milky sap.
  • Some species are classified as Environmnetal Weeds in tropical areas. Check with your local council for further information.
