I live in Massachusetts and was wondering if I can successfully plant jasmine. It grew outside my home when I lived in NM and I miss the scent it gives off.

Jasmine isn't cold hardy enough to endure the winter weather in your gardening region but there's no reason you can't grow jasmine in a container and take it indoors over the winter months. Or, you can place the container in an unheated but above freezing place in the wintertime. If you have an outbuilding or a garage that remains above freezing but below 50F, the plant will just sit patiently until you move it back outdoors in the spring. If you love the fragrance, it might be worth the trouble to baby a jasmine plant along. Enjoy your garden!
