Night-blooming Jasmine

Night-blooming Jasmine

One of my Night-blooming Jasmine trees in full bloom. There has never been this many blooms in 6 years, and I give thanks to Flcrazy for introducing me to Miracle Grow Bloom Booster. I applied it 3 times a week and watered them daily and there are hundreds of blooms on each one ! The scent is SO strong when I go outside at night that I can't stand very close to them. Unbelievably, during the day there is no scent at all and the blooms close up tight.

I think I'll have to see if I can get this booster here. I have penstemons and they have not bloomed for quite a few years despite being repotted etc. Maybe it will do the trick.

Flcrazy needs to quickly negotiate a commission deal on this Booster product ! LOL

We'll all be using it after seeing that Jasmine.

Wonderful blooms, Diohio.

Oh you're so right.......Flcrazy should definately get a commission on the stuff ! It really does work miracles though. Last summer this plant had maybe 10 blooms on it during the summer and that's ALL ! It did bloom again for me in February I think, with another dozen or so blooms.

I've been told that most tropicals do need a lot of fertalizer but I had no idea that there was one made to increase blooms.......and I had no idea how often to apply it. I was using regular Miracle Grow once a month. No wonder !

A real lesson to be learnt here.
Makes me wonder with how many plants I've gone wrong on the feeding
(or lack of it ! )
Apparently it is possible to overfeed some plants, so it's a tricky balance.
Seems like for your Jasmine you're spot on with the mealtimes and the menu !

You're right Terratoonie, and that makes me wonder how many I'll kill in the future because of too much.

This is a cool looking shrub. It looks like nicotiana sylvestris on steroids...lol.Thanks so much for the kind comments too, and I'm thrilled the bloom booster is working for you too. Just remember, less is more when you are trying to figure out a new plant's fertilization needs and you shouldn't ever have to worry about killing another plant, I promise...lol.

Well thanks Flcrazy, I'll remember that. And you're so right..........nicotiana on steroids ! lollol !
