The Q&A Archives: Jasmine Doesn't Bloom

Question: How can I encourage my jasmine to bloom. I have a healthy plant, giving it good nutrition and enough light.

Answer: Jasmines are generally cyclical bloomers and some varieties bloom more often than others. In other words, they won't bloom all of the time no matter what you do. To encourage blooms, keep the plant growing vigorously, and do not give it excess nitrogen fertilizer (which promotes foliage over bloom). You may want to scratch bone meal into the soil around the plant. Bone meal is a source of phosphorous, which promotes bloom. I hope this helps!
