6ft Winter Jasmine | 10L Pot | 'Jasminium nudiflorum'

Lovely winter interest plant suitable for shady locations

The flowers of Jasminium nudiflorum, also known as 'Winter Jasmine', will bring colour and life to your garden, even on the darkest winter days when nothing else seems to grow. The small, delicate, yellow flowers appear in January and are accompanied by gorgeous, dark-green, glossy foliage that will easily fill empty spaces in beds or borders.This vigorous climber is easy to grow and easy to train up over pillars, arches or trellises but would look equally as impressive if left to grow freely as a scrambling bush or up over a wall. If space is limited this versatile plant can be grown in containers and placed on a patio. Hardy and reliable it will thrive in both the full sun or partial shade and is suited to most soils.A brilliant feature of this Jasmine plant is that it is both winter flowering and wildlife friendly. At the start of the year, when plants are sparse, and there is very little else about, it blooms; attracting bees and other pollinating insects helping to support them.

As we recommend with all plants, it is key to regularly water newly planted plants in the months after planting.

Jasmine plants are extremely versatile and can even be grown as part of hedge or as a ground cover plant.

Trachelospermum jasminoides is a self-clinging, twining climber that benefits from supports. Young stems will need to be tied in, until it is able to climb.

Jasminum nudiflorum has not a true climbing plant, but instead clambers over objects. Tying it to canes will allow it to make faster progress upwards.

When planting, dig a hole twice the circumference of the pot. Ensure the pot sits roughly level with the soil, with the graft point above the soil. Infill, the remaining space with a mix of compost and garden soil, but do not compress the soil.

In terms of care, watering is important especially during the summer months. They will need a thorough watering twice weekly during dry spells.

Trachelospermum jasminoides produces on older wood, while Jasminum nudiflorum produces on last year's growth. Both need minimal maintenance, but can be tidied in spring. Old Jasminum nudiflorum can be rejuvenated by cutting away top growth and letting young shoots take over.

Your jasmine will be sent directly from the grower, in the heart of England, to your doorstep. This approach means that you get a nursery fresh plant which was on the growing table one day and at your door the next. Our expert climber nursery has spent decades perfecting the art of watering feeding and pruning climbers and will do so until hours before it is packed. We see this as a real advantage over garden centres, were plants can be left unattended for weeks on end, or even other mail order companies that despatch from fulfillment sites.

This plant is grown on a cane and expertly packaged into a specially designed, extra thick cardboard box, which holds the plant in place, and sent through a delicate courier network to prevent any chance of damage in transit.

There are numerous plants that go by the name Jasmine, but the genus we stock are both winter hardy. Below we address some common queries:

  • Position: Jasminum nudiflorum (winter jasmine) will flower even in partially shaded, cold sites, while Trachelospermum jasminoides benefits from full sun, but will suffice in dappled shade.
  • Soil Types: soil types are best ignored and remain an unwelcome confusion. Every plant will adapt to its conditions. Having said that, less than ideal conditions will reduce growth. Waterlogged soils will starve your plant of oxygen, which plays a key role in photosynthesis, cause its roots to rot and create the perfect environment for many diseases. Similarly, compressed soils can starve a plant of oxygen and water, so do not compress the soil when planting. Aeration can be improved further with mulching.
  • Hardiness: both species of jasmine originate from China, which has far colder winters than the UK, so the UK's mild winters will not affect your plant.
