Feed and water Plumbago plants regularly throughout the growing season. Plumbago is a vigorous climber and will require training onto a trellis or climbing frame to support its twining stems. Prune in late winter or early spring, cutting back side shoots to within 3 or 4 buds of a permanent framework.
