Select a Spot
When selecting a spot to plant your Asian jasmine, make sure to choose an area that receives full sun to partial shade. The plant also prefers well-drained soil, so avoid any areas that may be prone to flooding or pooling water. Once you’ve found the perfect spot, it’s time to prepare the soil.
Prepare the Soil
When preparing the soil for planting Asian jasmine, it is important to loosen the soil to a depth of at least 12 inches. This can be done by using a spade or tiller. Once the soil is loose, mix in a 2-inch layer of organic matter such as compost or peat moss. This will help the plant to retain moisture and nutrients.
Plant the Asian Jasmine
To plant the Asian jasmine, dig a hole that is twice the width and depth of the plant’s root ball. Place the plant in the hole so that the roots are spread out evenly. Backfill the hole with soil, tamping it down gently as you go. Water the plant deeply immediately after planting.
Water the Plant
Water the plant deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. After that, water as needed to keep the soil moist but not soggy. Asian jasmine is tolerant of both drought and occasional flooding.
Fertilize the Plant
Fertilizing your Asian jasmine is important to ensure that it grows healthy and strong. You can use any type of fertilizer, but we recommend using an organic fertilizer that is high in nitrogen. Apply the fertilizer around the base of the plant, being careful not to get any on the leaves. Water the fertilizer in well.
