Confederate Jasmine Vines – Growth in Containers

Q: We want to use Confederate jasmine vines to grow up and trail over our garage doors. Can we successfully grow them in pots?

A: Confederate jasmine can be quite robust so I’d opt for the biggest container you can fit in the space, with a 24″ x 24″ minimum pot size for one vine. Watering will be the main issue because once the vine is large it will transpire lots of moisture each day through its leaves. Make it a habit to check the container soil dampness daily in summer and soak it as necessary.
