Eventual height & spread

can I grow yellow star jasmine in a large ( 3ft tall) pot? it would be sharing with a patio wisteria.

chipper

Hello, While the Trachelospermum would be ok on its own in a really large pot for several years, I would not advise planting it with a Wisteria as ultimately both plants are large, so would much prefer being planted in the ground.

Helen

Would trachelospermum jasmine ideas thrive in Surrey grown against a fence which is south west facing ?

Happygardener

Hello, I'm afraif I cannot be too specific as it will really depend on the conditions in your garden, however if the spot is reasonably sheltered and the soil is not too heavy and wet (particularly in winter), then you should have a good chance.

Helen

does the Trachelospermum jasminoides Star of Toscana smell as strong as the white Trachelospermum jasminoides?

Angharad

Hello there As far as I know the scent is much the same as Trachelospermum jasminoides.

Are these plants self-supporting i.e. would they cling without additional support to a brick wall, similar to the way, say, ivy would?

Ladybird

Hello there No this climber needs a support like a trellis or frame to twist up.

I would like to plant an evergreen jasmine on an open metal fence in full sun, subject to strong westerly winds. I like the Star of Toscane but would T Asiaticum Goshiki, T Variegatum or T Wilsonii be better? The soil seems to be tending towards clay. I'm mostly interested in successful growth as this borders a neighbour's property and l want it to look good for them too.

Pansy Potter

Hello, All the Trachelospermums need a relatively sheltered spot to thrive, so they may not be suitable for the exposed spot you have in mind.

Helen

I have a 3 yr old Trachelospernum Jasminoides, looks v healthy & happy, growing well to top of porch & now coming across -but never flowered! HELP!

hobbledehoye

Hello, If it is getting plenty of sun, water and fertiliser then you could give it a bit of a push by feeding with a fertiliser that is high in Potash. The best would be either Sulphate of Potash or Tomorite - just make sure you follow the directions.

Helen

We are looking for some kind of hardy evergreen climbing plant to form a nice and neat door arch. It will be east facing and partially shaded with a large tree in front of our door on the pedestrian pavement. Would you recommend this plant to be easily trimmed to form the shape and ok to grow in partially shaded east facing location?

Cindy

Hello, Unfortunately this climber is not fully hardy and it does prefer a sunnier spot, so it would not be ideal. A better option would be Hedera helix Glacier - please click on the following link to go straight to it.

Helen

Hi, bought this from you last autumn and we are waiting for it to get going this year, how high will it grow this year roughly do you think? Also I planted it slightly lower than the ground level, was this the right thing to do? thanks

emmamo

Hello, Ideally these should be planted so the soil level is the same as it was in the pot. As for growth rate, this is tricky as it largely depends on external factors such as the available water, light and nutrients. It has to be said that these are not the fastest growing climbers though - at least until they get well established, so you may need to be patient.

Helen

Would this be toxic to dogs? I am looking for an evergreen climber that will also flower and hopefully grow quite quickly. Thanks.

Cassie33

Hello, It is always best to check with your vet, but I have looked on the Dogs Trust website and they have not listed this plant as being toxic to dogs - see link below. https://www.dogstrust.org.uk/help-advice/factsheets-downloads/factsheetpoisonoussubstances09.pdf

Hi would this plant be ok to grow in the garden with gravel around the bottom sort of like in a gravel garden Thanks

GAZZA

Hello there Yes as long as it is planted in a sheltered sunny position, in soil, and is kept well watered it should be fine. Hope this helps.
