Jasminum plants

Jasminum plantsJasminum are favourite plants for training over arbours or trellis-work, and for growing against walls. The hardy kinds will flourish in ordinary soil. The stove and greenhouse sorts should be provided with a mixture of sandy peat and loam.

Jasminum plants may all be increased by cuttings of ripened wood planted in a sandy soil under glass.

Jasminum Nudifolium produces an abundance of bright flowers after its leaves have fallen, and is very suitable for town gardens. Jasminum Unofficinale is likewise adapted for town, bearing confinement well, and has very sweet flowers. Jasminum Revolutum needs protection in severe weather. They bloom in July and their height is about 12 feet.
