Answer: Since jasmines bloom on new growth, the more new growth you have, the more flowers you'll have. Pruning is straight-forward: everytime you prune a stem, two new stems will be produced. So, the more you cut back your plants, the more flowering new growth will be produced. The best approach is to prune your jasmines back hard in the spring and then prune periodically during the summer season to encourage new growth. This will keep your plants compact and full of flowers. Hard pruning means removing all the old, dead growth and reducing the plant's size by about one-half. Hope this provides you some guidance!
