How to keep a jasmine plant
I have a jasmine plant outside but it never flowers. How can i look after it so that it flowers?
Hi Deniz, without knowing exactly which kind of jasmine plant you have I can't really tell you much.
There are some species that are outdoor plants such as Jasminum nudiflorum, which will bloom on old wood only, first thing in the spring. These will be yellow flowers, and not scented.
The Poets Jasmine, or Jasminum officinale, is the plant most people associate with the scent, and is not very hardy.
The Spanish Jasmine, J. grandiflorum will grow as a vine to 15 feet and blooms all summer in the right conditions. It needs something to climb on, to get the growth up high. The tops of the plant need full sun to encourage blooming. The old flowers dry up and stay on the plant, a distinguishing characteristic.
If you know which species you have, it's easier to give you advice on what to do to trigger the bloom.
Best of luck!
