 Oh, yours looks like stephanotis, mine is a jasmine polyanthum, like in the photo.

Mine died, or so I thought, I never got the watering right, so I put it in it's pot outside and forgot it. Then it grew new shoots! So I repotted it and put it out on the kitchen terrace and it's grown, about 3 feet tall now.

I've never managed to keep one more than four years, except the deciduous one, Gloire de Versailles, which can be pruned. Mine always went crispy leaved then died, whether I pruned them or not. I always thought Dordogne winters are too cold for them.

Morning all.

Just seen the weather forecast - rain all week from Thursday, just when 3 children & OHs and 7 grandchildren will be staying.

Hello and welcome all newcomers. Lots of gardening advice, but if you just want a chat there is Hello Forkers. Or look at the photos on the Garden Gallery or the Star in Your Garden.

Bekkie, that's what I hoped it was!

OL, I think I like my big peaceful bed too much! But thanks.

We have been sitting outside, drinking wine and chatting, but now it's too cold and the mozzies are about.

Can't come on Friday, even with a Tardis. Will have 6 adults and 7 grandchildren staying for Son No 2's baby's christening on Sunday.
