Winter jasmin

I planted 6 winter flower jasmin shrubs 2 years ago.....each of them flowered last winter....but this year only one of them is showing signs of flowering. Any suggestions as to why the others are reluctant to flower. Thanks

    Thanks Philippa....all planted in the garden enjoying the same aspect....the weather conditions were reasonable with a balance between wet and dry (unlike the previous year when we had extreme heat)....photo to follow....hope this helps...
  • Ah!  Jasminum nudiflorum.  Winter Jasmine.  Delicate, brilliant yellow flowers, but a bit of a so & so to grow.

    By this I mean.  Unlike other jasmines, it tends not to branch out.  It retains its genetic wiry-like growth.
    From experience, might I suggest.  Don't be afraid to cut it back, even cut it down.  It is a rampant grower and if left it will go on and on.  Try and confine it to being  part bush and part climber.

    Mike thank you for this advice....when would you cut it back/down? Im attaching some photos .....

    Looking at the photos wouldn't cut it back, compared with ours yours is sparse, I just trim ours to keep under control, to stop it rooting where it touches the ground, and stop it going next door.
