How to grow jasmine

Summer-flowering jasmines are climbers with clusters of small, fragrant flowers, usually white or pale pink. Winter jasmine has a bushy, scrambling habit. Its yellow flowers open on bare stems to bring cheery colour throughout the colder months. There are also several tender jasmines for growing indoors.
