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 officinale, beesianum and stephanense will need to be tied in.

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 produces on last year's growth. Both need minimal maintenance. All Jasminum should be tidied in after flowering, which is spring for nudiflorum, late summer/early autumn for everything else. Old Jasminum nudiflorum can be rejuvenated by cutting away top growth and letting young shoots take over.

Below we address some common queries surrounding your White Potato Vine's care:

  • Position: Solanum laxum will appreciate a sunny, sheltered site, ideally situated in full sun.
  • Soil Types: Plant your Solanum laxum in soil that is moist, but well-drained.
