Jasmine Officianalis


Alex Palmer added on January 29, 2017 | Answered

The bottom of my jasmine is scant and bare, and there is a HUGE amount of flowering heads at the top of the plant, now threatening to invade my bathroom window. Should I prune it back from the bathroom, cut it right back to the ground, or neither?

Yes, you can certainly prune your jasmine back as far as you wish. Pruning back to about 2 feet from the ground is fine, and it will help the plant produce more foliage near the base. Jasmine should be pruned soon after the flowers fade, as explained in these articles:
