Jasmine Vine

Anonymous added on January 6, 2014 | Answered

I have a vine that is 4 yrs old. Neighbors put up new fence, so the plant is a tangled mess and they cut some of the vines. Want to place it back on a chain link. How do I prune it, cut it, etc. without killing it?

Summer jasmine is best pruned just after flowering, in late summer or early autumn. Winter jasmine should be pruned in spring, immediately after flowering. On both types you can cut back flowered stems to a strong sideshoot and thin out crowded, crossing or misplaced branches. You should also remove any weak or thin stems. Overgrown vines can be cut back to about 2 feet from the ground.
