Winter Jasmine - leaves dropped from the heart of it - what to do?
For the last four years this winter jasmine has been dense with foliage, so that the birdbox in the heart of it could almost not be seen. It was still in good health as we entered autumn 2019, but now the heart has dropped its leaves, and many of the green leaves in the perimeter have dropped too - possibly because of the two recent storms here in Shropshire.
It is west facing, it gets lots of light and moderate direct sun, and it gets enough rain water.
What should I do?
I'm wondering whether I should trim it back, removing all the green foliage around the perimeter, so that, hopefully, the centre will sprout, and I'm thinking that that if this is the best course of action then I should do it fairly soon.
