It’s time for the monthly jasmine update. For those just tuning in, I planted some jasmine in June, and I’m tracking it as it grows. Watch my garden grow! Or something.
So, the good news is that the two northernmost jasmine are both doing really well. They’re putting out shoots of new growth, and flowers, and they are being generally awesome.
The bad news…is that the jasmine under the peach tree is really struggling. I think that for some reason, it was shocked more than the other plants when I planted them, and it is having a tough time recovering. I thought that it might be dead, but there is some healthy growth near the base, so…we shall see. I’m trying to baby it along.
The southernmost jasmine is doing ok. It’s not quite as robust as the ones to the north, and for some reason it keeps detrellising itself, but it’s got a good foothold, and it appears to be going strong.
The cool thing? All those buds and flowers are just the teensiest bit aromatic, and on a sunny day when I sit on the porch, I can smell the jasmine. Which is a vastly superior smell to all of the other odors which haunt this neighborhood.
