    I live in south Mississippi and want to cover a chain link fence with this. My question is I have a ditch near by and during a heavy rain it has a lot of water for a couple days. It does dry up tho. Will it work in this? Do I need to keep in a bucket or plant on the ground be ok

    I got a star jasmine plant in late summer, kept it inside in a pot over winter but I completely forgot to water it. I thought it was dead, but just to check I cut a bit into the stem – the thing was alive! After months of no water and little sun, it was still alive. Once I started taking care of it again it started growing like crazy. My only problem is that it drops its flowers pretty soon after they bloom – like a day or two after it unfurls it’s petals, they get brown and fall off. But I’m still super impressed at how hardy this thing is

    Hi Jim
    Can I grow this plant outdoor in New York? Thank you.

    I grew up in California, in the east Bay Area. We used this as a ground cover – was very beautiful and didn’t mind our hot, dry summers.

    Hi! Looking for some advice here 🙂 live in the uk. I bought a star jasmine about 2/3 months ago and kept it in the porch in it’s original pot while I waited for winter to pass. During this time it grew quite rapidly.
    About a month ago I planted it against a south facing wall and since then it hasn’t grew at all. The leaves have turned a pale green colour with a hint of red/brown. I did notice it recently flowered. It’s roughly 1meter high and produced around 3 flowers.
    Is someone able to tell me why this could be happening?
    I’m not very clued up on this plant and can’t seem to find the answer online.

    Get out of my head! I just ordered a Madison jasmine, which is the improved form…thanks so much

    Just what I need! I just bought one of these lovely plants!

  10. marezeedo on September 6, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    I just purchased a Star Jasmine plant about 2’ tall. Within 3 days a deer ate 75% of the leaves. I’ve always wanted this beautiful aromatic plant. Now I’m fearful I’ll lose it! Should I fertilize it? The original main stem is there with several off shoots, and only a few leaves. What do you recommend to help it grow? I don’t suppose I’ll get more flowers this year, will I? Thankyou for any information.
    I’m in zone 9B, foothills of Calif.

    Can you do a video on training a jasmine to cover a trellis?

  12. M F Q on September 6, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    My zone is 8. I have a southeast facing balcony and have planted my star jasmine against a wall on it in a big pot. I get a ton of sunlight through the day, but in the late afternoon and evening the sun has moved to being less direct. Do you think there is a chance my plant will stay alive through the winter? I don’t want to move it indoors in winter.

    I love this video. Very concise and informative. I bought one and wanted for it to grow beautiful. Thank you!

  14. kala shrestha on September 6, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    Is there like flower food I can put in jasmine ??

  15. Andrew Carlson on September 6, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    My summer scent

  16. triangle whip on September 6, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    I been trying to stem grow it. No luck..

  17. kala shrestha on September 6, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    Am I supposed to move plant in a ground??

  18. Mathew G on September 6, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    Question, I can only grow on my property on the north side of my property and I’m in zone 7a. I’d love to grow jasmine but you said I’ll get the North wind on it. Will that kill it? Can I still grow it there? I’d love to install a trellis with it

  19. Mike Literus on September 6, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    I got some seeds for this in the mail, and two of them sprouted, grew to about 2 inches tall with only two leaves and have not grown more since, it has been 3 weeks. How long does it take to grow more? They are in full sun and I water every few days. Or did they send me the wrong seeds?

  20. Stud Ryan on September 6, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    Are any parts of it poisonous?, any berries or anything?. And also, what kind of soil does it prefer?

  21. R K on September 6, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    Excellent video. Thank you. I have three of these and it has grown a huge amount. When will it flower though as it’s partial shade.

  22. Cindy Rubin on September 6, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    Hi! I have a ‘red & pink’ honeysuckle on my arbor that I love. However, the bottom is very woody… suggestions?

  23. mr question on September 6, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    can it withstand a Michigan winter if planted out side

  24. Mallt Walters on September 6, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    Hi Jim,

    I have a 2 or 3 yr old potted star jasmine in a sunny position with a view to screening a fence. It has become woody with red leaves but virtually no flowers..

    I do not think my support system successful on the fence has been as the plant has collapsed onto itself.

    Should I cut back the plant and start again ?
    Please advise…!!

  25. Bibi T on September 6, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    I just purchased the star jasmine vine. I just could resist it’s amazing fragrance. I’ll be planting it on the ground. Thanks so much for this video, so helpful

  26. Georgia Horton on September 6, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    Just bought one and it doesn’t seem to smell.

  27. Craig Davies on September 6, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    Thanks, you have sold it to me!

  28. S S on September 6, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    I took a walk on the Cliff Walk in Newport, RI on Sept 3,2021 star jasmine plants were growing wild there in zone 6…

  29. Rita Marcon on September 6, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    I’m new to gardening and love the smell of this plant. How do I grow this as a ground cover?

    Dear person, genuine repentance and recitation of those words will protect you from coronavirus:

    "Falun Dafa is Good" and "Truth, Compassion, Forbearance is Good".

    Dafa (or Falun Gong) is a spiritual cultivation practice for mind and
    body that is widely spreading in the world, it is based on the
    principles of the Universe:

    真 Truthfulness
    善 Compassion
    忍 Forbearance

    It includes gentle exercises and meditation. It helped millions of people
    to regain health, peace of mind and obtain spiritual fulfilment. Since
    1999 this peaceful practice has been brutally persecuted by the CCP in
    Mainland China. More than 100 million people around the world practice Falun

    I went to nursery and bought jasmine and after 2 weeks jasmine died making me feel devastated. How do I revive jasmine ??

  32. Anita it is Anita on September 6, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Trachelospermum jasminoides. Its got a real name. Confederate? We are in a BIG world. Let’s not be thinking it ends at the 4 corners of the USA

  33. Earth on September 6, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    Will this plant dangle if grown on a hanging pot?

  34. Kathleen Cromwell on September 6, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    I just started the plant thing, bought this jasmine plant and it’s been outside. I live in Southern California and it’s been I the 100’s outside. Will this heat hurt this plant? A lot of the white blooms are turning brown.

  35. Pierre Wagner on September 6, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Can you grow this plant from pruning it, to make another plant.

  36. Ann Harlan on September 6, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Only in white? What about pink or yellow?

  37. Jodibean B on September 6, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    Thanks for a concisely informative video! Would the same apply for Arabian Jasmine?
