Jasmine needs partial sun or full sun to grow well. Water evenly, according to the temperatures in your area. The Jasmine plant needs a balanced fertilizer in the Spring season when it develops new leaves. In the summer season, when it is in full bloom, apply a bloom booster or flowering plant fertilizer.
