Plant and care for jasmine - this is how it's done


There is a sweet, beguiling scent in the air when the jasmine blooms in the garden. Find out here how jasmine is planted and cared for.

Jasmine smells wonderful

On warm summer evenings, the bewitching scent of jasmine is particularly noticeable, which is why many often plant this climbing plant in a bucket and then place it near the terrace and on the balcony. However, jasmine perennials are also suitable for a flowering hedge design, which of course requires a climbing aid (e.g. a trellis) or a stable garden fence. Or he climbs up house walls (grows up to 10 meters tall), encases decorative arches and vine arches, etc.

No matter which variant you choose, it is important that you know how jasmine is properly planted and cared for. And that is exactly what we would like to explain to you in this article.

Plant jasmine

Site selection:

The mostly white to pink blooming jasmine loves the sun. However, it is sometimes somewhat sensitive to the blazing midday sun, which is why you should plant it on the east and / or west side of the garden. If you only want to keep the jasmine in pots, then you should place the jasmine tub plants in a place that is protected from the wind and also has plenty of morning and / or evening sun.

Soil / soil preparation:

When choosing a location, you should also pay attention to a loose soil. Before planting, it is best to enrich the soil with plenty of compost and loosen it up again and again around the trunk.

Caring for Jasmine properly

Fertilize:

Jasmin plants need to be regularly supplied with liquid fertilizer as they grow. Depending on your needs, fertilizers should be given over a period of two to four weeks.

To water:

In addition, the jasmine loves a constantly moist soil, which should not, however, form any waterlogging. You have to water the jasmine regularly, but you also have to pour excess water in the planters.

In the field, you should take care when watering the plants that the irrigation water can seep away or run off.

Rear section:

If the jasmine needs to be cut back, early spring is recommended for this before new shoots or leaves sprout on the stick. You can also prune tub plants in autumn.

Wintering:

Some types of jasmine, with the exception of winter jasmine, are only partially hardy, which is why you must protect them from severe frost in winter. The plants are coated with a special garden fleece or straw mat.

Container plants, on the other hand, can be placed in a cool (below 10 degrees) but bright shelter and overwintered. If you hibernate the jasmine sticks in an interior, you have to water them from time to time.

As soon as you bring the stored jasmine plants back outdoors in the spring, you should put them in a shady location for the first few days so that they do not burn their leaves immediately. So you have to slowly get the jasmine used to the sun.
