3m Tuscan Jasmine Archway in 2 60L Troughs 'Trachelosperum Jasminoides'
This wonderful Tuscan archway makes a fantastic and unique statement piece. As you walk under the arch you will be surrounded by beautiful and delightfully fragrant flowers that bloom in abundance leaving the air smelling fresh and sweet.
As this plant is already mature it will make an instant impact in your garden and you won't have to wait. The small star-like white flowers which keep throughout summer are accompanied by dark-green glossy foliage. They would look wonderful placed at the end of a pathway, as a doorway to your garden or surrounding the entrance to your home.
The hanging flowers like droplets of snow give a delightful charm to any garden. The leaves will turn a bronze-shade in winter and will prefer a south-facing, sheltered area. Prune back after flowering to protect against frost and feed during summer for a more vigorous plant.

If planting in the ground:
Before planting your climber, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the trellis base. Water well during the first year until well established.
Dig a hole 2X the width of the rootball and deep enough for the root collar to sit just above the top of the hole when in position. Make sure to position so that the trellis is aligned as you desire.
Once positioned, backfill with soil and firm every few shovels to ensure there are no air gaps.
If planting in the a container:
Fill container with soil mix to the desired level. Then follow the steps above. You will not need to dig a hole quite so wide as you are planting into fresh soil.
Caring and Maintenance
Water regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertilizer in spring in order to promote healthy growth. Optionally, mulch in spring.
