Winter Jasmine 90cm Cane 3L Pot 'Jasminium nudiflorum'
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.

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.
Try to encourage the plant to climb up structures by tieing in or entwining around a trellis, arch or any feature of a the house that the plant can get a grip on. Once settled, removed the cane and allow to climb unaided.
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 after flowering to strong buds or young lower branches. Apply some fertilizer in spring in order to promote healthy growth. Optionally, mulch in spring.
