Jasmin - Prune or not to prune?
Hi all, I have Jasmin dotted about the garden. I take cuttings from last years plants and grow them on through the winter and then plant out. I am not sure if I should cut them right down to the base or just discard them and start again? I heard Monty say on GW that you just cut them right back after flowering but does he mean to the base or prune to a bud like a rose? The first pic, (sorry they are sideways) against the brick wall is last years plant. As you can see it is looking sorry for itself but it is still alive. The other pic, against the fence is 3 year old. Again, looking sorry for itself but it does re-flower (or has for the last 2 years) but, granted nowhere near the full flush of its first year. So, the question is, do I leave them, cut them right back, or bin then and start a fresh each year? I am not sure what variety. I know it is not Star.
