Jasmine officinale 'Clotted Cream' is the traditional cottage garden jasmine with flowers right through the summer. It is unusual in being hardy enough to grow outside on a sheltered sunny wall, as well as indoors.

Genus Jasminium
Group/Species officinale
Variety Clotted Cream
Type Hardy Perennial Climber
Common Name Jasmine
Border Position Climber
Soil Type Neutral
Scent Scented
Site Full Sun, Part Shade
Moisture Moist but Well-drained
Height 4m (13ft 1in)
Spacing 3m (10ft)
Sowing, Seeds, Planting Choose a warm, sunny but sheltered position to bring out the sweet fragrance. Will tolerate partial shade and colder positions provided the soil is well-drained. Great planted in a pot and trained up a trellis. Use a minimum 30cm (12in) diameter container, cover drainage holes with crocks (such as broken pieces of old terracotta pots) to prevent compost washing through and fill with a good quality peat-free compost. When planting (in a container or in the ground) make a hole big enough to accommodate the root ball and sprinkle mycorrhizal fungi into the base of the planting hole. Position carefully so the plant is at the same depth as it was growing previously, backfill and firm gently around the base before watering in well.
Care Tips Feed containerised jasmine plants monthly with a high potassium liquid feed (such as tomato fertiliser). Border specimens can be top dressed with a balanced, granular fertiliser such as Growmore, or with an organic seaweed fertiliser. Hardy down to -10°C but may suffer from frost damage in colder winters. Prune after flowering to give new growth time to mature and flower early next season.

Fantasticly good service. Quick and convenient. Plants arrived very well supported and in excellent condition.The packaging gives an air of thoughtfulness care and quality.
This is a lovely plant but really vigorous so I am going to keep it in a lager pot as my garden is small. Makes a great contrast to big leaved plants.

I brought this Jasmine in May and it arrived in excellent condition. I planted in it a 45cm pot by my south facing front door to train up and over the doorway. It started to produce buds very quickly and is now flowering. It smells divine in the evening and if I leave the front door open wafts into the house. I noticed the new growth could not cope with the intense sun and heat we have been having and would wilt if left exposed to it. I have therefore had to cover it with a long light scarf for the hottest part of the day which it has responded well to. I hope it will flower more prolifically next summer.
