Jasminum- Jasmine

We shall only discuss the best known and most hardy species – a deciduous climbing shrub which flowers in the middle of winter.

Situation:

Against sunny or partially shaded house walls, preferably close to a window, in order to have a good view of the little flowers. If possible protect against frost and strong wind. The twigs should be tied in here and there.

Soil:

Against house walls the soil is usually very sandy and should first be improved.

Propagation:

By layering, from cuttings, or from seed sown under glass.

Jasminum nudiflorum, winter jasmine: The flowers appear on leafless twigs. Height to 3 m, pale-green branches; fragrant yellow flowers from early winter onwards, provided it does not freeze too hard. Twigs cut in bud will open in a vase indoors and will keep fairly well.
