About Winter Jasmine: There are lots of flowering plants in the winter season, but winter jasmine is one of the best flowering plants in the winter season with minimum caring, easy to grow plants, and because at a time lots of flowers bloom. The scientific name of winter jasmine is Jasminum nudiflorum, and it comes with the Oleaceae family and is native to China.
Winter jasmine grows to 4 to 10 feet and spreads up to 5 to 7 feet. Lots of flowers bloom during the winter season, and these flowers give a fragrant smell. The flower colours are yellow with five petals. The Center part of the flowers is dark yellow or reddish. The branch of the plants is thin and dark green. The leaves of the plant are green with a round shape. Leaves grow up to 2 to 4 cm long and spread up to 2 cm.
How to plant at home: We have two methods to grow winter jasmine at home, one is by using its seeds, and another is by cutting off the stem. Here we go with the cutting method, and January is the best time to plant.
Prepare Soil Mixture & Planting: To make a soil potting, take well-drained garden soil (40%), coco peat (40%), and vermicompost (20%). Mix it well and take a large flower pot (at least 10 to 15 inches with 8 inches in width). Fill the soil mixture into a flower pot, give water (remove soil air from the pot), and take out the cutting of winter jasmine. Dig holes 5 to 6 inches deep and dip the cutting into holes. Cover the holes with soil potting and press the soil. Give water properly and keep the plants in a semi-shaded area.
While planting: Cutting should be at least 4 to 5 inches with 3 to 4 leaves. Always cut the thick stems. Make sure drainage holes are available at the surface of the flower pot. If there are no drainage holes then make 5 to 7 holes. USDA hardiness zone 6-10.
Within 10 to 15 days, new leaves and branches start to germinate. If you planted 4 to 7 plants in one flowerpot, there is no need to transplant them.
Top 4 Caring Tips :
Watering: Don’t overwater. In the summer season, give water after 2 to 3 days, and during the winter season, give water once a week. In the summer season, keep well moisture in the soil, or before watering, check the top layer of soil. If the top layer of soil is dried up, give water immediately.
Temperature: Don’t place the plants in direct sunlight. Direct sunlight causes leaves and flowers to be dry and fade. For best growth, always keep the plants in semi-shaded locations. During the winter season, keep plants in full sunlight and give morning sunlight during the summer season. Save plants from high-temperature (above 25°C).
Best fertilizer: Fertilizer is essential for plant growth or flowering. Give fertilizer to the plant before the growing season and water the plant after fertilization. Cow dung and NPK are the best fertilizer for plants. Click here to buy cow dung and NPK
Pruning & Trimming: If there is no growth in the plants and they look green and fresh, we need to trim them. For cutting, always cut the dried leaves/ branches and faded flowers. Cut the head part of the stem. Always use gardening tools for cutting.
