frost damaged Jasmine

For the past two years my evergreen jasmine has produced flowering buds in late summer early autumn I have really tried to protect them from frost damage to no avail, what would be the best time to prune the dead buds in the hope of generating new growth for this coming summer

    If possible, can you post a photograph? Jasmines are not usually evergreen. Some might be semi-evergreen in very protected areas but generally they are not evergreen. Trachelospermum Jasminoides, called the Star Jasmine are evergreen. Could it be that plant? 

    Generally, any dead or dried up buds can be pruned out in spring now, but you could have removed them from last year well into autumn time. This would not damage your plant. 

    Frost damage happens more likely if you are very far north and trying to grow any Jasmine. The only way to limit this is to grow them in a small micro climate in your garden. Preferably on a south or south west wall or corner with surrounding shrubs or trees very close by. 
  • Ah yes I think that is what it’s called thank you I’ll try pruning now and hopefully get some flowering buds forming for this summer
