I bought a wisteria and a jasmine plant about a month ago and it seems it's going down hill for them. They're not blooming. There are no flowers at all. What am I doing wrong? please help. Thank you

Wisteria grows best in loose, well draining soils. It likes its roots in the shade and top in the sun. It isn't unusual for newly planted wisterias to sulk a little until they become established in the garden. The best thing you can do is water it deeply once each week and wait until it has adjusted to your yard. It should grow rampantly once it does.

Jasmine likes morning sun and afternoon shade. It, too, likes loose, rich, well draining soils. It takes a few months to become established after transplanting and appreciates moist soil. Water deeply once or twice each week and it should begin to grow once the roots become established.

Best wishes with your garden!
