Weather

If you live in a warm area, jasmine will be happy outside your home. However, if the area where you live is too cold, you must protect your jasmines.

Space

Don’t forget that jasmines are climbing plants, so they grow a lot. Give them enough room to grow. If they are near one, jasmines will probably lean against walls or fences. But do not worry. You can show the jasmines the way you want them to grow without much effort. You only need to bend the plant.

Soil

Jasmines need a well-drained soil, as excess moisture can rot their roots. If you have your jasmine in a pot, make sure it has holes in the bottom.

Watering

Your flowers will need water if it’s hot. So, during the summer, try to water the jasmines at least twice a week. But don’t overwater. As we mentioned, excess moisture can cause your plant to rot. Also, if you overwater your jasmine, the plant will warn you by turning its leaves yellow.

Prevent water from coming into contact with the leaves or flowers. This exposes them to sunburn and could damage your plant.

If you live in a damp or cold place, you should water your plant less often. Water it every two weeks and make sure you protect it from the weather.
