Trachelospermum jasminoides ‘Chinese Star Jasmine’ – 20cm pot
A highly decorative, evergreen, fast-growing climber which has won many prestigious awards. Chinese Star Jasmine has highly attractive oval deep green foliage with a glossy texture on twining stems. The stems will find anchor points to wrap around to gain support. Having a trellis or wire structure for the plant to grow along/up will help give you a stronger healthier plant. In Spring and Summer, Chinese Star Jasmine is decorated in masses of pure white flowers which are highly perfumed. Flowers emerge in clusters and are bee and bird attracting. Once the flowers have finished the plant can be given an overall prune to encourage thicker, neat growth.
Position: Full sun – Part shade
Make sure to prepare the soil prior to planting. Mixing in a bag of well-aged animal manure or compost can help to conditions and revitalise tired soil. Make sure to blend with pre-existing soil, mixing together thoroughly. Once the soil has been prepare, dig a hole which is wider, but not deeper, than what the original size of the pot the plant has come in. Position the plant in the hole and backfill any gaps with the excess soil. Give the plant a deep soaking of water to help settle the roots.
If planting into a pot make sure that the container chosen is large enough for the plant being planted. Never pot a plant into a container which is too small. Use a premium quality potting mix as this has all the added fertilisers and wetting agents required for having a healthy plant.
