The exotic perfume of Jasmine in the mid summer garden is unmistakable. Twined over an arch or grown in a conservatory there is a Jasmine to suit. Many Jasmine plants are fully hardy but some require a more sheltered position and tender species are best grown indoors.
Not all jasmine are climbers. Evergreen Winter Jasmine (Jasminium nudiflorum) is grown as a shrub up against a wall in many gardens. Yellow Jasmine (Jasminium humile) is grown as an arching shrub and flowers from late spring into the autumn.
All outdoor grown Jasmine plants prefer a fertile soil in full sun or partial shade. Maintenance and pruning is not complicated but does vary according to the variety. Details are given in the specific plant listings, along with individual site and soil requirements. So pick your fragrant favourite, get planting and enjoy!
