Too Late To Prune Winter Jasmine Plants?

Q: I need to prune my winter jasmine plants. Is it too late to prune now?

A: It is too late in the season to prune if you want flowers next year. Winter jasmine blooms in January and the buds to make those flowers are already formed on the stems at this time. On the other hand, if your jasmine is a tangled mess, now is a fine time to clip out the craziness. Late spring is the normal time to prune winter jasmine, after it finishes flowering.
