    An attractive woody, evergreen climber with rich, dark green leaves which turn bronze in winter. Clusters of highly fragrant, pure white flowers are produced from mid- to late summer. It is best grown against a warm, sunny wall in milder areas or in a greenhouse or conservatory in areas prone to severe frosts.

    This made excellent growth from the minute it was planted. Doing well growing up a plant support. Flowered well for its first year and smells lovely when you are near enough.

                          Strong healthy plant bought to climb up a trellis. This is now slowly doing its job. Only one flower this year, but hopefully ,ore to come next. Thick growth as it climbs with lovely dark green evergreen shiny leaves. Once established will provide great cover

                              It really depends on how impatient you are. These plants have an ultimate height and spread of around 3 x 9m, so if you are happy to wait, then you could probably get away with just the one. If however you want more immediate cover, then you could plant three or even five along the fence.

                          • Q:

                            My newest trachelospermum has been doing really well - lots of buds and flowers but the flowers have quickly turned brown. Another (much more established) plant in a different border is in much better condition - thousands of healthy flowers. I think the aspect is right but the new plant is in clay soil (into which I have tried to incorporate much topsoil) whereas the older plant is not. Is this the problem?

                              There are a couple of things that may be causing this, however I think that the main cause is probably related to how much sun the plant is getting. Flowers will tend to fade faster if they get lots of hot mid-day or early afternoon sun, and watering may also play a part as the flowers will be the first thing to be shed if the plant is stressed. Finally, when watering, avoid wetting the flowers as this too may cause them to rot, or if hit by strong sunlight soon afterwards, scorch.

                            I was thinking of buying this climber to grow up a small North-East facing wall. The wall will get the sun early morning but not after.

                            Does that count as "full sun" or should it be west or south?

                              Really a Trachelospermum needs a sheltered, sunny south or west facing aspect, so a north east aspect won't be warm enough for it.
                              There are other plants that will grow in a north east aspect with limited sun. I have attached a link below.

                              These tend to flower from mid- to late summer, although the weather does affect this, and they often have a smattering of flowers into autumn.

                            I bought and planted one of these star jasmine plants in April to grow round a garden arch. Though the roots are mostly in shade, the plant gets afternoon/evening sun. Last month I noticed that the leaves had started to get dark brown spots on them and I'm not sure what the cause is. The plant looks generally healthy and is flowering, and the leaves aren't fully turning brown, but the spots are on nearly all leaves, including new growth coming through. I've pruned off some of the worst affected, but don't want to remove them all otherwise I'd be stripping the young plant of most of its leaves! Are the spots likely to be fungal or environmental? It has been quite a cool, wet summer?

                              Hello,

                              The best times for planting are either spring (or if you have a sheltered garden) autumn. It can however be planted in summer providing you make sure it is kept well watered. They tend to be quite happy in clay soils, provided they are not too heavy or remain waterlogged for any length of time. They need to be kept well fed (a good general purpose fertiliser such as Vitax Q4 ids ideal) and watered and if they get too big, they can be cut back to fit the available space after they have finished flowering.

                              You will need to provide something for the twining stems to cling to and make sure the plants are kept well fed and watered, as this will encourage new growth.

                              These are twining climbers, so need to have something to twine around for support - some trellis, an arbour etc. Therefore they will not cause any harm at all to your brick wall.

                            We have just bought 2 Trachelospermum jasminiodes which we have planted in a metre long trough to grow up a trellis. We have separated and attached the stems to the trellis and planted in multi purpose compost. We have watered probably every other day and the compost is moist at all times. When we got them they had a few yellow/red tinged leaves, these fell off. Since then more of the mature leaves have gone yellow/red (with red/brown spots on the back). Is this anything to worry about I.e disease? Thanks

                              If it is the older foliage, then I would not be too alarmed as it is quite normal for evergreen plants to lose some of their older leaves as they put on fresh new growth.
