Growing jasmine

I wanted to find out some advice on growing jasmine. 

1. Are they Hardy for south East UK? 

2.Are there any particular variety that are better than others. Most important thing for us is fragrance and being Hardy so as not to require being inside house in winter. 

3.Any problems to watch out for? I am hoping to grow them in south facing garden against fence.

    There are two main types of jasmine - nudiflorum which is fully hardy in the UK and flowers in winter - yellow and no scent -  and officinalis which flowers in summer - white and scented - and is hardy except in exposed gardens in the UK.  There are some forms which are less hardy and need a conservatory for winter survival.

    You need to get acquainted with the RHS website which has this comprehensive information on jasmine -  Follow the links for more info on particular named plants.
