How To Grow Jasmine

Add top soil or organic peat moss to the hole when you plant. You can also add composted cow manure to the mix to enrich the ground.

The vine-like growth may require regular trimming to keep the plant the height you need and the shape you want. Give it a hard pruning in spring (late March to early April).

Water regularly. This shrub is considered moderately drought-tolerant once established, but regular irrigation will keep it at its best. It doesn’t even mind “wet feet” so you can use it in areas where the soil stays moist well after rain.

Fertilize 3 times a year – spring, summer and fall – with a good granular fertiliser. Supplement feedings, if you like, with bone meal and liquid fertiliser to promote heavier bloom.
