I would love to grow Summer Jasmine in a corner of my garden. I live in N.Ireland would the weather in my part of the world be kind enough to let this plant flourish?



Depends upon which jasmine it is.

Hardy jasmines:

Jasminum nudiflorum (yellow non scented flowers)
Jasminum officinale (pinky-white also non-scented)

Jasminum polyanthum (nicely scented, white flower) is not that hardy in most places in UK and Ireland, but as Armagh is Zone 9 and if you have a very sheltered spot in garden, you should get away with growing it (say full sun position, well drained soil, protected from wind).

Thankyou for the advice. I am going to try growing the J.officinale as the corner I would like to grow it in is very sheltered and will provide a good spot for it :)

You picked a good hardy Jasmine, so will be fine! Mine is pretty exposed but south facing and survived the cold snap of last winter!
