When we added the conservatory we moved two roses and a jasmine off the walls of the house where it was going. The roses did OK after the move and are doing fine right now. The jasmine finished its season last year still looking chipper.
After the winter the jasmine looked like this:
|dead as a proverbial .....|
The bits of green you can see in the box are just weeds.
After I'd finished doing the pots I had a bit of a tidy up and thought I might as well chuck the jasmine away and put something else in the box.
|every stem has shoots|
On a closer inspection I realised every stem has the beginnings of new growth. it is very far from dead. I am interested to see how this will do this summer.
