How do I get my jasminum polyanthum to flower.
My jasmin is now 3 yrs old was health and in full flower -lots when bought. It is on a southfacing patio wall which only gets full sun from 8 am to 11ish am. It was planted in the right soil recommended and it is in a very huge pot. It has never flowered at all since putting it outside and every winter it looked as though it was dying after the frost but managed to pick up each time. I must admit I havnt been feeding it monthly all the time but have fed it some months during the summer only. This winter I am going to cover it with netting to protect from the frost and I am going to take it away from the wall to which it is clipped and wrap at around sticks in the pot instead to see if its happier that way and the netting will be easier also to wrap around it. Can someone please give me ways of how to get it to flower. Is it because I'm not feeding it enough and if so what is the best feed for it and how often should I be feeding it.
