Jasminum nudiflorum

Plant details

A popular and reliable shrub, introduced from China in 1844, and widely grown as a wall shrub. It can be allowed to scramble freely over a low wall or up a bank, or trained up a vertical framework. Unlike many other jasmines, winter jasmine does not twine, so will need tying-in if grown vertically. The stems are bright green and give an evergreen impression, even in winter when the tiny bright yellow blooms appear, weatherproof in all but the coldest snaps. Regular pruning keeps bushes under control and prevents bare patches from appearing. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it the Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

Hi there,
I would have liked to have known how and when to prune,


Pruning instructions please, for all plants if required, as not everyone is able to consult someone in person. Thanks


Pruning winter jasmine should be done after flowering.
Cut back side shoots to strong buds (5 or 6).
Remove dead or damaged wood.
If your plant is well established, cut about a quarter of older shoots down to the base.


Yes I was hoping to find pruning details as well as I have a well established Jasmine in need of attention


Lovely tiny yellow flowers brighten up even the dullest of days.
