Answer: Jasmine can be grown outdoors in regular garden soil, in a sunny location, or planted in containers and given full sunshine. It should be trained to a trellis, wall or pergola, or to stakes in the ground. It is very important to prune jasmine at the correct time or it won't bloom. The shoots should be cut back well as soon as the flowers have faded. This will ensure blooms the following year. If you didn't prune yours back, that's why it isn't blooming now. It should recover, though, and bloom next year if you cut the plant back by about one-third now. As for the browning leaves, your plants are either getting too much fertilizer or too much water. You can feed every 2-3 weeks with a half-strength dilution of liquid fertilizer. If you feed full strength, or more often, you run the chance of burning the roots (and seeing browning leaves). Water your jasmines when the top inch of soil is dry. Be sure to water thoroughly so that the entire root mass gets wet, then wait until the top inch of soil is dry before watering thoroughly again. Best wishes with your jasmines!
