Why Jasminum Sambac is not growing

I purchased Jasminum Sambac from Amazon but since 45 day I didn’t see any new leaves or any other growth signs in the plant. I started searching for answer “why”. After gathering information I listed some important points which help Jasmine to grow beautifully. Here are those top three points I worked on

– Jasmine like Well aerated Soil . Mix Miracle-gro sphagnum Peat Moss, potting mix and native sandy soil.  Jasmine root needs to breath so be sure to add more of Peat Moss then others. I had planted it with ONLY potting mix and so reason the soil was heavy then expected.

– If It is showing yellow leaves then its high time for fertilizer. Jasmine like fertilizer which is high in phosphorus. I used 10-10-10 fertilizer.

– Prefer sunlight but no direct sunlight to the plant.

and Voilà ! It’s all growing can you see the off shoot Now I am waiting for the flowers to bloom.

Happy Gardening !
