    A popular, sweetly scented climber smothered in clusters of highly fragrant white flowers from June to August and pretty, fine foliage. This versatile, deciduous climber appreciates a sheltered, sunny, well-drained site, and can cope with dry conditions. Since it spreads quickly in all directions, it's ideal for covering a large south or west-facing wall or an unsightly garden building. In small gardens, it is best planted in a large pot and trained up a trellis or wall.

  • Garden care: Plant Jasminum in a warm, sunny and sheltered location which helps to bring out the sweet fragrance of the flowers. If the soil is well-drained, it will cope with partial shade and colder positions, though it may suffer from frost damage in colder winters. When planting, add some soil conditioner (well-rotted compost) to the planting hole and some mycorrhizal fungi to aid root establishment. Grow Jasminum against appropriate support such as trellis or wires attached to walls and fences. Tie the shoots into their support as they grow.
