To keep a vigorous climber healthy, late winter or early spring pruning is a must. Start by removing dead, damaged, diseased, or unproductive stems. Remove overly tangled stems. Remove errant stems, especially those growing away from the support. Then reduce some of the stems by about two thirds and some by one half. Your jasmine will flower on new growth that develops on the old stems. After you've reduced the size of your jasmine the new growth will cover any bare areas that resulted from your pruning. Since jasmine flowers on new growth of the season, you can safely prune it back again in late spring or early summer to encourage new flowering growth. Enjoy your garden!
