Q. Can I separate a stem of Jasmine, for potting?

I have a beautiful Jasmine in a pot and I recently chopped it all back to its stems, so it grows full and thick, it’s doing beautifully but there is one branch that is much longer than the rest and I would like to know if I can cut it away from the rest of the plant, for potting elsewhere.

I’m moving sometime in the next two months and I want to be sure they will prosper, until I plant them in their new home…a garden at last.

Yes, you can propagate new plants from cuttings. Here is how:

Q. Will Night Jasmine bloom if pruned to only 3′ tall?

Due to the planting location of our Night Jasmine, we need to constantly prune it to approximately 3′ to 4′ high. We planted them one year ago (Sept. 2018). Unfortunately we have not see any flowering. We wanted the flowers as mosquito repellent.
WILL WE EVER SEE FLOWERS WHILE MAINTAINING THIS HEIGHT?
IS THERE A DWARF VARIATION?
We’re thinking Night Jasmine is similar to Bougainvilleas, just plant and leave it alone to enjoy its full potential. If that thought is accurate, any suggestions on a 3′ to 4′ high flowering mosquito repellent?

There is no real scientific evidence that any plant will repel mosquitoes. The best you can do is rub the suggested mosquito plants on your skin for a repelling action from the oils. Below is a list of such plants.

Night jasmine should be pruned AFTER it blooms, so maybe that is the problem. They can grow to 8 feet tall and are used for privacy screens. Here is more information:

Q. Dead wood on jasmine

We have had a Trachelospermum jasminoides in a large pot for 13 years. Earlier this year we thought we had lost it to frost but it has flowered profusely in parts, and rather late in the season. This is it now, middle of September. What needs to be done with it now? Thank you.

Q. raising Jasmine indoors?

When bringing Jasmine plant indoors before frost, I have sunlight 2 hours directly. Should I use a sunlamp for the other 4 hours? I water on the rim of the plant every other day – it is growing leaps so this must be ok. I transferred it into a 2 gallon pot a few weeks ago and now it is up to my waist. Should I get a bigger pot? Should the fan be high or low and how many inches away. I used Miracle Grow 12% Phosphote is that ok? I have a china plate under it, and I will have a pebbled tray.

this is my first plant in many, many years. Anything you can tell me will be wonderful. Thank you.

In viewing research, I found so many different scientific names for the same common name of Star Jasmine. Some said the berries were toxic, some said the leaves, some said Jasmine was non-toxic.

You would need to know exactly which type you have. In the article below, the species is Jasminium species in the Family: Mimosaceae.

The variety in the GKH article is Jasminum polyanthum
