It has finally taken off!


By Joey

It has finally taken off! (Jasminum officinale 'Clotted Cream')

My Jasmin has been sulking for a year - finally it has come out of the duldrums

Interesting. Did yours start off with yellowish leaves? I put a new one in this year, and it has not grown much but has a few flower buds coming. Did you feed yours? - or just talk nicely to it?

Actually got really grumpy and ignored it - the first year it looked just about dead so I cut it back quite harshly. Seems alright now though! I was given it while it was in flower last year and now I throw it the odd compliment while sniffing deeply! I dont feed anything in my garden except the slugs it seems...

This is one of the better Jasmins it is always a bit slow to start but once it gets going it is very very vigorous and certainly does not need feeding,

Spritzhenry I bought a jasmine officinale yesterday and it is about 3ft high and it has yellowish leave and it looks like it about to flower but the buds look pink

I took mine out in the end - and found out the reason why it hadn't thrived. The roots hadn't spread out into the soil much at all! That was over two years...It must have been more pot-bound than I realised. :-( Good luck with yours!
