It will not survive the winter outside in Connecticut. You will need to bring it indoors for the winter.

Q. My Jasmine Plant

When and how do you prune or trim a jasmine plant?

A.

Since jasmine usually blooms on last year’s growth, the best time to prune outdoor plants is just after blooming. Prune away dead, weak, or damaged shoots in late winter or early spring after danger of frost is over. Prune back no more than 1/3 of the vine at a time.

A.

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.

Has it been cool and damp lately? These conditions often interfere with a plant's fragrance. Additionally, too much fertilizer (like nitrogen) can sometimes be the cause. While it creates lush growth, the blooms and subsequent smells from them may be reduced.

I think that there would be enough light in this location to keep these plants happy. You should be fine.

Q. how and when is the best time to transplant my stephan jasmine?

My jasmine is 6 years old and I need to move it to the other side of the garden. I tried last year with another one I had and it died. As my late father bought them for me, I don’t want to lose another one.

The older a plant is, the more likely it is to go into transplant shock when moved. This article will help you try to prevent it and will explain how to treat it if it happens after it has been moved:

Fall is a good time as is spring for transplanting. You are looking for relative cool but not cold temperatures with plenty of water (from rainfall or from manual watering).

Q. Cuttings in fall

Can you start plants from cuttings in the fall–such as Jasmine and Crepe Myrtle?

A.

Crepe myrtle cuttings are usually taken in spring or fall, while jasmine cuttings on outdoor varieties are best propagated from hardwood cuttings taken in winter, or softwood cuttings from tender varieties taken in spring or summer.
