Can I Replant My Jasmine Plant During the Summer?

Updated November 21, 2016

Jasmine is an attractive, aromatic flowering vine that makes an appealing addition to home gardens. Jasmine is a hardy, fast-growing plant, and large specimens can be replanted any time of the year including summer, according to Texas A&M University. If transplanting jasmine from a potted container to an outdoor growing location, ensure that you locate the plant near a wall, fence or sturdy trellis that can support the vigorous growth of jasmine vines.

Planting Jasmine

Choose a suitable location to replant jasmine on your property. Jasmine grows best in locations with full sun to partial shade that remain warm throughout the day. Jasmine grows in a variety of soil conditions and does not require special soil preparation before replanting, according to Clemson University. Dig a hole slightly larger than the potting container in which the jasmine is currently growing -- usually 6 to 12 inches in diameter and 5 inches deep is adequate -- and place the plant in the hole. Spread the roots out, cover with soil and water thoroughly to settle the soil. When replanting in summer, it is important to water jasmine regularly to maintain soil moisture and facilitate healthy root development in the new location.


Established jasmine vines can be replanted at any time of the year. Small jasmine plants that are in 4-inch potting containers or smaller should only be replanted in the spring to ensure that they have the full growing season to establish a healthy root system before winter, according to Texas A&M University. Plants that are established in larger container with demonstrated growth will adapt well to new growing environments whenever they are replanted.


Jasmine plants, once established, have a vigorous growth rate and require frequent pruning to maintain their size and appearance in your landscape. Jasmine plants need plenty of space to grow. Replant jasmine plants at least 8 feet away from other plants to prevent jasmine vines from overrunning other plants in your landscape. Train jasmine vines to a nearby support with twine to manage the direction that the vine grows for best results.

Types of Jasmine

Several species of jasmine are easy to cultivate, propagate and replant in new locations in home gardens. Poet's jasmine (Jasminum officinale) is one of the most common species popular for its numerous white fragrant flowers. Winter jasmine (Jasminum nudiflorum) is a shrubby species that has yellow unscented flowers that appear in winter. Asian star jasmine (Trachelospermum asiaticum) and confederate jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides) are grown as groundcovers unless tied to vertical structures; both are commonly grown indoors in potted containers.
