Jasmine Vine Planting Guide

A Show that Goes On and On, Up and Over
If you're a regular shopper on this website you've probably noticed that there's a pronounced leaning towards plants with fragrance. And why not? Doesn't beauty plus fragrance beat out beauty alone, in most cases? With that in mind, this category of strong and sweetly scented flowering plants was developed. And yes, we're still on the hunt for that elusive jasmine that's winter hardy to zone 5. (Or 4!)
Outdoor Beds
  1. Find a location where the soil drains well. If there are still water puddles 5-6 hours after a hard rain, scout out another site. Or amend the soil with the addition of organic material to raise the level 2"-3" to improve the drainage. Peat moss, compost, ground bark or decomposed manure all work well and are widely available. Jasmines prefer fertile soils; adding compost or decomposed manure to provide nutrients for these fast growing plants is a good idea.
  2. Site your jasmine where it will receive full day sun or lightly filtered sunshine.
  3. Dig a hole and situate the plant so the soil in the pot is level with that in your bed. Tuck the plant in and tamp down the surrounding soil to remove any air pockets.
  4. After planting, water your jasmine generously, soaking the soil to settle it around the root ball. Plants develop quickly in warm soil. If the soil is still quite cool, wait until it warms before planting outdoors.
  5. Water as needed during the growing season, depending on the amount of moisture Mother Nature provides. Jasmine need an average amount of water, about 1-1.5" per week and perhaps a bit more during the first season as they settle in.
  6. Provide supports - stakes, trelliese or fences - for the plants to climb up. Pinch branch tips as the plants gain size to shape and encourage fullness. Fertilize lightly during the plant's active growing periods.
  7. Enjoy the flowers and feel free to snip small branches to bring indoors. Or pinch a few blossoms and float them in a low bowl to add fragrance to a summer patio candlelight dinner.
  8. After flowering has finished for the season, ease back on fertilizing. Avoid pruning your jasmine after early August to keep from snipping off future flower buds.
  9. Water sparingly during the winter. Your jasmine will rest for a few months before beginning its next growing cycle in the spring.
Planters, Pots, Tubs, Urns and Windowboxes
  1. Start with a fairly large container as jasmines are often big plants when mature. Fill with fertile, well draining soil. If using average soil, adding compost or decomposed manure to provide nutrients for these fast growing plants is a good idea.
