I have a Jasmine plant and am told it can grow rampant and try to get in everywhere. I was advised that I should grow it in a pot. Question is – a pot with drainage holes, or a pot with the bottom cut out? And secondly, I have been trying to grow my pohutukawa tree here in Rotorua and it keeps dying! So I’ve cut the dead branches etc off and hope again. Any advice??? And yes – have tried frost cloth to no avail!

The Chinese star jasmine is fine to plant in the ground. This does not have the same invasive habit. For other jasmine – plant it in a pot with holes in it to stop it spreading if it is the pink and white variety that is invasive. Your Pohutakawa tree may be struggling if you have heavy clay soil. They like free draining soil. To achieve this create a gradual mound of quality compost mixed with your existing soil to elevate the root ball. Dust the hole you dig with Gypsum and backfill the hole with compost before putting your tree in.
