    I have a lovely winter flowering jasmine in my garden and would like to have more of it to cheer up the dark winter days.  Is there a right time and / or a right way to propagate my plant? And if anyone  has successfully done it are there any tips that would help?

     Is it the Jasminum nudiflorum that you have?  I bought one of these about 3-4 years ago and when I was planting it, one of the twigs fell off so I just poked it into the ground, in another part of the garden, which rooted and I now have a small plant.

    Yes  Sue that's the one I have.  I'm wondering if  that would have been autumn or spring you stuck the twig in? I think I'll have a go in the spring when it's finished flowering and see what happens. Many thanks for letting me know you suceeded with yours.

     If I remember rightly, it would have been in the spring as I bought it over an Easter weekend, it was one of the last ones in the reduced section.

    The layering method would work very well too as the main plant does try to take root if any parts fall down and are in contact with the soil for too long Wink
