These unusual night jasmine are quick-growing and have a beautiful scent so make a gorgeous gift for a keen gardener who enjoys plants with a strong fragrance. We are pleased to have a fresh batch of these plants ready this week which are younger than those than pictured, but strong and healthy none the less. We will update the photos just as soon as we can.

This is a very special plant - grown for its heavenly perfume rather than its subtle flowers. It is not a true jasmine - the latin name is Cestrum nocturnum. It will do well on a sunny windowsill or in a conservatory, but better still put it on a patio or balcony and you can enjoy its scent in the autumn evenings.

In the winter bring the plant inside because it is not fully hardy. Ideally it should be kept above 5 degrees centigrade. To ensure your plant gets enough light, place it near a window in a bright room or conservatory. A cool room is best so try to keep your plant away from any radiators.

In summer these plants need regular watering but as the days get cooler they should only need watering when they get really dust dry. Unlike true jasmine they cannot tolerate standing in water, and they will suffer if overwatered.

In winter the plants will tend to drop their leaves. Keep the plant compact, feed it in the spring, and you can expect more flowers in late summer. Remember to put your plant where you can enjoy the evening scent.
