Growing Star of Toscana Jasmine

It needs an element of shelter and will do best away from drying winds, preferably against a warm wall. It performs beautifully in partial shade.

A good container plant, it needs a well-drained moisture retentive soil but is not fussy about pH. It will require support and is good grown as a pillar or over an arch as long as the site is not too exposed.

The white sap that you will see when pruning causes skin irritation to most people, so gloves are recommended.

To use it as ground cover, trim it a couple of times a year to keep it low and dense (we prefer to use it as a vertical climbing feature).

Please note: Although it is not common, it does happen that this plant will refuse to flower for a few years while it settles in. Adding some potash may help, but do not overfeed.

In Your Garden Design

This jasmine is ideal grown in a warm site close to a sitting area where the wonderful scent can be best appreciated, and it is also excellent grown as a pillar or over an arch as long as the site is not too exposed. Intertwine with a lovely clematis, we suggest the blue Bijou and surround by other fragrant flowers such as phlox (try candy stripe) and freesias. Alternatively, opt for a gorgeous blue and white theme. If you are feeling patriotic as it is Platinum Jubilee plant some gorgeous red roses such as the glamorous Ingrid Bergman hybrid tea.

Planting and Care Instructions

How to grow Trachelospermum jasminoides:

Needs a constantly moist root run during the growing season and so it is essential to incorporate a humus rich compost around the roots when planting.

Make a good size hole, larger than the root ball, add some bonemeal and Root Grow around the roots and back fill with the compost. Water in well and mulch. It will need support. If growing against a wall use trellis or vine eyes and wires and tie in the major stems.

Look out for: Trachelospermum jasminoides is frost hardy but may need protection in severe winters. It does not do well in exposed sites with drying winds or with impoverished soils and so will benefit from a monthly feed during the growing season and should be kept well watered throughout the summer. It may occasionally suffer with scale insects which can be removed with the use of horticultural oils or a dilute solution of washing up liquid.
