Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Non-flowering Jasmine - My partner has a well established (not sure of age but at least 7 years) jasmine bush which barely flowers. I heard about treating plants like people. ie. a teenage branch will produce more flowers, be more flexible etc. but does that mean i have to cut right back? She now hangs over the veranda - probably 4-5ft. A lovely green and looks a picture but usually jasmine has more flowers - here, uk, australia etc. It bares just a few all through the year as far as i can see - although i do see many buds. I am so ignorant to all the basics. Perhaps it is overwatering......
I have attached a photo of some rare flowers after cutting it back in our February (end of summer).
I will send photos of the 'crown' and 'true leaves' tomorrow as it is nightfall here now.
My great thanks in advance. I love jasmine and its a good start for me.
