Planting and flowering details
Show moreThe scented Italian Jasmine will grow best in a pot with special compost for potted plants. Choose a large pot with holes in the base. Cover the bottom with a layer of potsherds or some hydro-pellets. Add a layer of the potting compost and plant the Trachelospermum jasminoides root ball at the correct depth. Fill the planter with more potting compost, press firmly and water immediately and generously. Your scented Star Jasmine needs a sheltered, sunny spot on the patio or decking.
Star Jasmine in the gardenScented jasmine combines really well with other potted plants. If you love fragrance on the patio combine them with Jasminum officinale. The two together will make a fabulous duo on your patio or decking with their yellow and white jasmine blooms, lemon scented geranium and hanging roses. Or try adding some Clematis tibetana ssp. tangutica next to yellow star jasmine - what a great combination! You could also dig your star jasmine into the garden (pot and all) but then you must not forget to lift and store it before the first frosts.
Show moreAll Trachelospermum jasminoides varieties are climbiers, perfect for the patio/decking, with flexible shoots that can be tied in to fencing or climbing frames. Always give a potted plant something to climb against. After flowering, it can be thinned out a little with a light pruning. Bakker advises feeding the Italian jasmine regularly when watering for abundant flowering.
Star Jasmine over the winterStar Jasmine is fairly hardy, to about -10˚C but Bakker advises bringing your Trachelospermum jasminoides indoors to a cool, light spot before the first frosts. Water sparingly. Temperatures can be about 4-12 ˚C. Bring your Star Jasmine into the warmth from April onwards and give it more water. Your scented jasmine plant can adorn your patio or decking once more come mid-May. If the winter is mild, just bringing the planter with your jasmine indoors when it's really frosty will suffice.
