My jasmine plant was getting huge and bushy so I decided to give it a pre-Spring haircut. Jasmine plants grow best when left to vine, and my jasmine had never been given a stick or anything to grow on, making it sad and bushy.
We took the Jasmine out of the pot and let its roots breathe. They were strong and healthy, a good sign that the re-potting was needed.
Untangled the roots a little bit and loosened them up.
We prepared a soil of dirt, vermiculite, perlite and compost. This will give jasmine needed nutrients and keep it from getting too wet or too dry.
The jasmine plant split well into three different plants, each with enough room to grow and vine. We separated the roots and planted them.
Spring is the perfect time to re-pot plants and give a much-needed haircut.
