I bought a jasmine earlier this year with little white flowers and its highly scented, its gorgeous. My problem being that I have put it at the base of my pergola, south facing, and it has flowererd and still a couple of flowers on there however it has grown about 1.5 metres and has now stopped growing.

I thought it would have grown higher than this??????

Should I have dead-headed as the flowers were dying? Seems to have lots of new growth but not sure if I have done something wrong and that is why its stopped growing. There was no labellling on the plant when I bought it so cannot give you any info as to its proper name - sorry! But if you can help it would be amazing

Thank you

Thankyou so much - This is it!!!!

Why would the store change the name in the first place is beyond me??

We are just in the process of re-doing the side garden and was thinking about putting them in the ground at the side of a seating area - what do you think? Is there anything special I should do beforehand or any different way to look after them?

Your help is much appreciated.................I'm so happy I've found it at long last

Hi, I bought a small patio rose in our local morrisons last year, it was called 'White Dream' and stated it was suitable for patio pots.

It is a beautiful white rose and last year had only a few flowers. I followed advice about cutting it back and this year I don't know whats happened but it

is a monster     and is so top heavy I don't know what to do with it. I would hate to think the pot was now too small and it wasnt getting what it needed although I feed it as reccommended.

On each branch there are at least 15 - 20 buds of all different sizes and if these all flower the rose is just going to topple over with the weight.

Does anyone else have this variety of rose? I have tried to find it on the web to look for advice and the  variety 'White Dream'  isn't listed ???????

I would so much appreciate your help of what to do with this monster  'Patio' rose

Thank you
