|I live in southern Michigan, I planted a star jasmine. Will it winter over,or should I prune it, dig up the root ball and keep it indoors over the winter?

|Unfortunately, Star Jasmine (Jasminum nitidum) is not a winter hardy plant, so apart from building a heated greenhouse over top of it I can't think of a way to protect it for the winter outdoors. To conserve space you can try digging it up and cutting it back and bringing it into a cool area where it will not grow much at all. You could also take tip cuttings as insurance in case it doesn't appreciate the disruption and/or simply overwinter the small cuttings.
