    Hi @amberspy, I had my Jasmine plants 3 years before I saw a single flower. (They are in pots) I have 2. Both bought from the same company at the same time. Both in full sunny positions fed the same. One massively outgrew the other for the first 2 years. Over the past  year they have caught up with each other. I had to repot in spring.  I mixed in some blood fish and bone and they have both grown hugely since doing so. It took a lot of patients waiting for those gorgeous scented flowers but was worth the wait. The pic below was before I repotted.  They are in much bigger pots now.

    Amberspy, I take it your Jasmine is not the same as Burtsnet’s one. The one in the photo is Trachelospermum Jasminoides. Not the same as the one on your title.

    Are you growing them in the ground or pot? The ones in the title can get huge eventually. If you only had them in pots they may struggle soon.

    Make sure they get lots of sun and soil not heavy. An established plant tends to flower more and grow better in drier and free draining soil. Growing in less sun or soil too rich may cause lots of leaf growth instead. It’s still young so see how they go next year.
