Q.Jasmine Vine Is Taking Over

Anonymous added on October 17, 2014 | Answered

We planted a Boston Ivy and night blooming Jasmine together thinking it would be beautiful. However, 5 years later the jasmine has completely taken over and is strangling the beautiful ivy. How can we prune the jasmine way back, without killing it?

Pruning jasmine is easy - just get a pair of pruners, and whack away. Of course there's more to it than that. The best time to prune is just after flowering, but since you feel that yours is overwhelming you, you probably won't mind losing flowers for a year, if you cut at the wrong time. So go ahead and prune as soon as you want, and feel free to cut back a lot.
