Trachelospermum jasminoides like a sunny, sheltered spot as they are slightly tender. When you brought it was it undercover or outside?  It's the sort of plant I would wait until all chance of frost has passed then plant out so it has got a growing season to get established before cold weather sets in, you probably didn't want to hear that though! Could have dried out, possibly caught by late frost?? You could give it a little feed, general fertiliser (growmore, vitax or similar).  Maybe put some fleece over it if we get anymore late frosts but otherwise time will tell. I'm guessing the ground it went into was good, not heavy clay or anything like that? Enough of my ramblings. Good luck.

What's the weather like in your area?

The soft young growth hasn't been caught by some of the horrible weather we've been having has it? Any heavy late frost where you are?

Also had this problem which I think has been caused by squirrels but like gol1locks only certain colours, they are obviously fussy animals!

Thanks bookertoo, I will be getting in touch with them to see what they have to say and then I will try some different suppliers! On the plus side I don't dislike the flowers I have they are just not what I wanted.

Thanks Jude, just noticed this morning that there seems to be one that is just white and green.  I think I will be getting in touch with supplier!  Hopefully I won't get bored of mine, they are in pots at the moment but I'm creating a green garden so will be going into that... hence the reason I'm getting fussy about the bit of pink!
