Plant details

Star jasmine is a woody, evergreen climber with rich, dark green leaves which turn bronze in winter. From mid- to late summer, pure white, fragrant flowers are produced. It can be grown against a wall in milder climates or in a greenhouse or conservatory in areas prone to severe frosts. Grow in well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade with protection from cold, drying winds. If growing indoors, plant in loam-based potting compost in full light but not direct sun. Water freely and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser monthly during the growing season, and water sparingly in winter.

I planted one of these beside my front door on a south facing wall which gets lots of sun. Nothing has survived there before but his looks very happy.


Gardening Grandma

This is a beautiful, fragrant plant that needs the right position to flourish. It needs sun and a sheltered, well-drained spot. It takes time to settle in and make root and is not easy to grow successfully,but if it succeeds, it is glorious.
