Jasminum polyanthum (scented Chinese jasmine)

Jasminum polyanthum (scented Chinese jasmine) £12.99
One of the photos on this page shows the plant with gift wrap. This is not included in the price, however you may add gift wrap (for an additional charge of £4.95) during the order process. Position: sun to part shade Soil: moist, well-drained soil Rate of growth: average Flowering period: April – May Hardiness: tender (will need winter protection) A vigorous twining climber with attractive dark, glossy evergreen leaves. The real attraction though are the masses of highly scented star-shaped white flowers that open from pink buds. A good choice for covering the wall of an unheated conservatory, or for smothering a wigwam of canes set into a pot. When grown inside in a warm conservatory they flower from late winter, but in colder temperatures the flowers appear from spring to summer. Garden care: Grow in a pot on a sunny patio with shade from midday sun during the summer, and move to a protected spot with a minimum temperature of 10C during the winter. Feed every two weeks during the growing season with a balanced liquid fertiliser. Prune to fit the growing frame in late winter or early spring.
