The Jasmine Project: A New Growth

It’s time for the monthly jasmine update; our as-yet nameless friends have had another month in which to grow, although the weather has been largely depressing, so there hasn’t been very much progress. (So much for the lofty claims at the gardening store that they would double in size in a few months; unless, of course, the growth rate follows an exponential curve.)

Some of the jasmine gang are looking a little woeful still, but there are definitely some promising signs of life.

The northernmost jasmine wont be winning any beauty pageants just yet, but I think its doing better than the other plants. Perhaps this mildly shady corner of the garden has the right light levels, or the soil stays moist longer to keep the roots happy.

The jasmine in the middle, looking reasonably dapper, all things considered.

It also has new growth; these flower buds are going to pop open pretty soon.

Woe. The jasmine under the peach tree is pretty unhappy. Yet, despite the browned leaves, it also has some new growth going on. I think it got upset, but its going to rally in the end.

The southernmost plant, also not totally stoked on life, but definitely surviving.

Perhaps if I named them they wouldn’t be so tragic. I’m also wondering if I should start taking bets on growth rates; give the little bastards something to compete for!

  1. Hello
    the Jasmine will take at least two years to grow big.
    I just lost my several years old plant to a gopher !!

  2. Man, the lady at the garden store was so full of it! And I’m sorry about the gopher situation; that really sucks!
