The Q&A Archives: when to prune

Question: I have a Carolina Jasmine that looks overgrown and alot of the vines are dead looking. Is it to early to prune it?

Answer: The best time to prune Carolina jessamine (Gelsemium sempervirens) is after it completes its bloom in the early spring. That way it will have time to send out new shoots that can mature and set bloom bud for the following year. Thanks for visiting our web site and good luck with your Carolina Jessamine!
