The Q&A Archives: jasmine

Question: I have a jasmine that I have had about 6 yrs. It is about 5 ft. tall and we haven't transplanted it in about 5 yrs. It struggles thru the winter but does great when brought back outside. This year it lost most of its leaves but is now showing a lot of new growth. Please advise on any tips and should I transplant it now?

Answer: Jasmine really does suffer when taken indoors but that may be the only way you'll keep it alive during the winter months. Now that it is actively growing again, you can prune it back to get rid of the dead stems and leaves and you can repot it in fresh potting soil. It may be time to move it up to a slightly larger container, too. With some grooming and repotting, it should grow well for you this summer.
