Hi All- any feedback is greatly appreciated. I recently bought this jasmine and re-potted for the back garden. However, it's really not happy and it's looking worse each day. I've fed it a little and there is more soil now on top of the roots than in these pictures- it's in partial sun right now and I've tried to keep it watered but not over-watered. Any suggestions?

The leaves look larger and paler green than my Jasmine, so it might be a different sort anyway, but my own Jasmine definately looses it's leaves in winter. Is it possible that it has been kept too warm to do so at the right time? It could have assumed that it was still summer if it was somewhere warm indoors. If it then had a chill it could try to shed it's leaves ready to re-sprout in - what it will think is spring - in a month or so.

I had this experience with my young Wisteria this year because I kept them indoors, fearing the effects of the very cold weather on the young plants. I realised what was going on about a month ago, because they were struggling along with yellowing leaves and half-hearted attempts to grow. So I put them outside. They lost all the old leaves in a couple of days, but are now sprouting tiny buds again. Smile

Many thanks! I did keep it indoors while we've had the bad frost- some of the leaves looked damaged so I thought it would recuperate indoors. It's been outside about a week or two and I'm going to move it to partial shade now and hope for the best.

I am glad that may have helped. As I say, the wisteria I put outside did loose all it's leaves, but re-budded again quite quickly, so don't give up hope if it seems to die off, it should grow again in a month or so. :D
