Do I need to protect over winter?


I've had this Jasmine for 2 years now. Over the summer it thrives but in the winter it looks sad. Should I protect it? Up north in Stockport so winter can be cold

    You can't really protect it as such if it's been there for 2 years.
    If it doesn't survive, you'll just have to plant something else more suited to your conditions. It's how it is.
    They certainly don't survive here. I wouldn't have though Stockport was very 'north',  but they're mainly suited to the south of England, and sheltered places - town gardens etc :)

  • Its done 2 years and each summer it comes back thriving so 🤞

    Just go with it - and see.
    It's looking quite mature, so even if you get some bits dying off - ie, stem ends, you can just nip those out once it's warmer in spring, and the bulk of the plant should survive .  :)

    This is what I find astonishing. When I was growing up, no one would have thought of Manchester as being 'north'. It's barely beyond half way 'up England'  :D

    Anyway - good luck with it   ;)

    My colleagues in our head office "down south" think I'm well up North in sunny Donny. It's only about the same "Northness" as Stockport :smiley:
    I think the trachleospermum will be fine there, just trim off any dead bits in spring.
