I planted a night blooming jasmine spring 2019 (got it from a local nursery). It's outdoor east side of the house (combination of sun and shade). It seems to have shed most of it's leaves except at the top (happened during first year). I am not sure if I am doing something wrong. I water it once or twice a week depending upon the season (unless it rains).
This has not bloomed yet.
Should I let it continue as is or is it okay to cut it close to the ground (and hopefully it will come back)? Is there something I am doing wrong that's causing this situation?
