Hello Greenenthu.

Jasmine must be pruned at the start of the cold weather say sometime around nov-dec. They need plenty of sunlight to flower. Reduce nitrogenous fertilizer and add more P and K. Bone meal, Rockphosphate are all rich in P and wood ash is rich in K.

Since they are ornamentals(not consumed as food), I would readily use inorganic fertilizers but opinion differs and I totally respect that.

It takes around 4-6 months for it to start flowering from the time of planting.

NOTE: I have 2 plants of Raat ki rani and thanks to satish for inspiring me to grow the same 🙂


Hi GG:

Is it better to use bone meal and wood ash instead of just using super phosphate and potash? I use a generous amount of superphosphate when I transplant and it seems to be helping immensely. Even before sowing seeds I add this compound to the soil. Am I doing something wrong? Regards.

Thank you for reminding me of Juhi! I will try to plant from somewhere. We have 'Harsinghar appeared twice in the garden, but each time have been cut, because it seems to attract insects that look like caterpillars, are very harmful if touched.

Hello Satish,

For container garden, it is totally Ok to use superphosphate and potash.As I say this I can feel the tip of the pistol on my back.. by the organic folks. So,If you are ok with using them, go ahead and use it. Some members prefer organic means of fertilizing their plants and I provided organic ways of providing P and K. Both of them work, inorganic works a little faster and provides the amount nutrient it is supposed to .

Finally, after a year my jasmine decided to return some affection and has shown few buds!!!

I had added only bone meal to it plus lots of vermi compost. I think with all the nutrients we have to add lots of TLC and patience to our plants. I will post the picture once I get few flowers.

Happy gardening

Hi GG:

THANK YOU for saying I inspired you to plant Raat ki Rani. As I have said elsewhere, you are very generous with your compliments! In any case, I am sure very soon your neighbours will be asking you for some plants too. It is really infectious! With you taking a liking for it, we will see lots more of these plants everywhere. Here's to an even more 'fragrant' India!! I have tried to post this message a number of times but am 'denied access'. Wonder what I was doing wrongly. Regards.
