Water the plant at least once per week whenever the top layer of soil starts to dry out. When watering, penetrate and moisten the soil up to 8 inches deep.
Use leaf mold as compost for the jasmine plant. Spread 2 inches of the mold around the area where the roots are growing. Repeat this process annually.
Once the plant starts growing, use plant ties to support the vines against a trellis. Loosely add a tie every 8 inches along the vine.
Prune away the top buds of the vine every spring in order to encourage growth. After flowering, trim away stems to the desired length. Cut away dead and damaged growth during the winter or early spring.
Fertilize the soil every spring using a 12-4-6 fertilizer. Make sure to leave 6 inches of space between the fertilizer and the base of the plant.
