Transplanting Jasmine Ground Cover


marisamsmith@gmail.com added on July 8, 2017 | Answered

I\'m transplanting some jasmine ground cover and the root system is about 8\" to 12\" thick in most areas and then tapers down to just an inch on the edges where it\'s running. Can I cut through the root system horizontally leaving just an inch or two of the roots everywhere without killing it?

Take cuttings from the established jasmine. Take the cuttings as close to the ground as possible.

Dip the cut ends in rooting hormone. Rooting hormone will encourage faster root growth.

Place the cuttings with rooting hormone in water. After several weeks, the roots should have grown to around an inch long.

Transplant jasmine to small pots after rooting. Use a sterile potting soil at first and make sure the soil is moist, but not too wet. Peat pots (2- or 3-inch diameter) are ideal because you can later plant them directly in the ground.

After a few weeks, the root structures should be strong enough to transplant into your garden.
